Abstract

An algebraic model of the turbulent transport of Reynolds stress is proposed, based on an examination of the budget of the transport equation for the third-moment of fluctuating velocity. Combined with a basic version of the second-moment closure, the new model is applied to the calculation of a two-dimensional free mixing layer. The results show a slight modification of the conventional gradient transport model for the turbulent diffusion, and yield a better agreement with experimental results in terms of the amplitude of the third-moment. The inclusion of a simple model for the pressure diffusion term indicates the possibility of further improvement of the turbulent transfer process in free flows.
