Simulation of Flows Near a Groin in a Straight Open Channel with Effects of Streamline Curvature
A mathematical model for predicting turbulence flows with effects of streamline curvature under orthogonal curvilinear coordinates is developed in this paper .The SIMPLEC solution procedure has been used for the transformed governing equations in the transformed domain. The flows near a groin in a straight open channel are employed to test the capability of the proposed turbulence model in capturing the effects of local curvature .The comparison between the computed results and experimental data shows a satisfactory agreement.
