The performance of recently developed eddy-viscosity turbulence models, including the author’s SST model, is evaluated against a number of attached and separated adverse pressure gradient flows. The results are compared in detail against experimental data, as well as against the standard k-ε model. Grid convergence was established for all computations. The study involves four different, state-of-the-art finite difference (finite volume) codes.
