TURBULENCE MODELLING AND SIMULATION OF ATMOSPHERIC BOUNDARY LAYERS

The essence and shortcoming of turbulence modelling and simulation of atmospheric boundary-surface layers are discussed. The present approach rests on the extensively tested and widely used two-equation k-epsilon model as it is used for shear flows are retained here. This eliminates the requirement of rigorous experimental validation. However, the model with its set of boundary conditions features compatibility and reliability with the commonly reported stable, unstable and neutral atmospheric boundary/surface layer data. The paper presents also a comparison with experimental data and other models and the need for future research in this direction.
