The applicability of the Reynolds stress model developed in Part I to fully developed rectangular duct flow is investigated. Two sets of experimental data are analyzed in order to prescribe a representative mixing length variation and appropriate values for the constants in the model. Predicted Reynolds stress values are in good agreement with their experimental counterparts for both sets of data. These results are compared with predictions referred to an alternate model in order to explain discrepancies observed in a previous study. Possible extensions of the proposed model to increase its flexibility are discussed.
