A modified eddy viscosity model is proposed to model the misalignment between stress and strain fields for variable density flows. The stress-strain misalignment is quanti- fied by introducing a C as parameter. A transport equa- tion for C as is derived from a full Reynolds stress model (RSM). The C as transport equation is coupled to a stan- dard EVM model (e.g, k − ω SST ). The performance of the proposed model is investigated via a turbulent buoy- ant plume.
