These models solve transport equations for concentration variance and dissipation rate and differ in the constitutive relation for the turbulent mass diffusivity and the form of the evolution equation for the dissipation rate. The predictive capability of the large-eddy simulation/Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes model is assessed through simulations of an air–air mixing-layer experiment and a sonic ethylene injection into a Mach 2.0 airstream. This model provides good predictions of the mean velocity, turbulence intensity, and rms temperature fluctuation throughout the shear layer flowfield but slightly over-predicts the spreading rate of the mixing layer. The simulation of the sonic injection is in generally good agreement with the experiment but...}, number={7}, journal={AIAA JOURNAL}, author={Zilberter, Ilya A. and Edwards, Jack R.}, year={2014}, month={Jul}, pages={1486–1501} }
