Abstract

A theoretical approach is developed for solving the Reynolds stress in turbulent flows and is validated for canonical flow geometries. In nature, the turbulence characteristic leads to form the Reynolds stress, which is more complicated in Fluid dynamics. A model has been introduced to solve the Reynolds stress in turbulence modeling. A closed form solution for the Reynolds stress is found in terms of root variables such as velocity, velocity gradient, turbulence kinetic energy and a viscous term.
