Abstract

Incident air flow towards a cube will be simulated in this paper. The standard k-ε turbulence model is used. Wall function is applied to the staggered grid at the upwind sharp convex corners by limiting the velocity component in the flow direction. It appears that the standard k-ε model is suitable for predicting air flow at the top of a cube. Both separation and reattachment around the cube can be predicte
