A fractional-step Taylor-Galerkin finite element method for incompressible turbulent flows
Although the finite element method has been successful in analysing complex laminar flows, a number of difficulties can arise when two- equation turbulence models are incorporated. This work describes a particular finite element discretisation of the k-e model and reports its performance in different test cases. Severe problems encountered in attempts to obtain convergence of the numerical scheme are isolated and analysed, and methods by which the problems can be overcome are suggested.
