V2F Turbulence Model for Fluent
V2F was developed to eliminate the need to patch (or damp) models in order to predict wall phenomena such as heat transfer or flow separation. It uses a simplified second-moment closure approach, taking into account the anisotropy of near-wall turbulence, while keeping a robust eddy viscosity assumption. As a result, V2F is valid throughout the whole flow domain, transforming into a near-wall model close to the solid surfaces. In the course of several years of fundamental research, V2F has been proven to be effective and more accurate in predicting wall induced phenomena than the standard turbulence models.
