Implementation of k-kL-ω Turbulence Model for Compressible Flow into OpenFOAM
The article deals with results of the implementation of the k-kL-ω turbulence model for compressible transitional flow into OpenFOAM. This model was firstly proposed by Walters and Leylek  and utilizes the approach of the laminar kinetic energy in order to predict the transition between laminar and turbulent flows. The performance of the implemented model has been tested for the case of flow over a flat plate and the flow through VKI and SE 1050 turbine cascades. The properties of the implementation of the model for compressible flow simulations into OpenFOAM are discussed.
