- Low-Reynolds RANS models are compared to DNS and LES data for profiles, and a number of experiments showing Nusselt versus heat/buoyancy loading.
- Nusselt Number versus Buoyancy:

- What it shows: In the heated & upward flow case the near wall layer is accelerated by buoyancy. This shifts the high velocity gradient region closer to the wall and as a result turbulence production is restrained by wall proximity, and eventually the flow relaminarises. It is a very good test of whether models correctly account for interaction between the actual turbulence length-scale (size of large eddies), and the non-local influence of a solid wall. The V2F , Lien & Leschziner, and Launder & Sharma models perform well. The k-omega, and SST models miss the relaminarisation. There is some similarity with accelerating boundary layers (see TaniaKlein 1st year report in this Twiki), as there is no direct effect of buoyancy on the turbulence.

* Key results: Some models (e.g. k-omega SST) miss the relaminarisation

- Five different heat transfer regimes are considered:
- "force convection"
- "force/mixed convection"
- "re-laminarization"
- "recovery"

- The flow is fully developed. Periodicity in the stream-wise direction can be used
- The flow pattern is axial-symmetric. For RANS it is possible to use just one cell in the ortho-radial direction
- The RANS mesh for RANS (See CONVERT in results section)
- Radial direction:
- n cells: 120
- distribution: geometric progression with expansion factor equal to 0.99, $y^+\; \backslash leq\; 0.3$

- Streamwise direction (z): periodicity, with a momentum source term to drive the flow

- Pressure Drop

Also for the energy equation a source term is required. If we consider the element of figure-1 and we apply the first principle of thermodynamic from the point of view of an external observer moving with the fluid and we also consider constant density we can write:
