Two linear eddy-viscosity models, the v2-f and k-ω models, have been combined with an algebraic structure-based algorithm for the evaluation of the Reynolds stresses. This closure was originally designed as an integral part of the algebraic structure-based model (ASBM) to capture the turbulent anisotropy occurring in rotating wall bounded flows. It is shown that the algebraic structure-based evaluation of the Reynolds stresses can be used directly with conventional turbulence models sensitizing them to rotation. Significant improvement in the prediction of anisotropic turbulent flow can be achieved without an additional tuning of the closure coefficients. The models are evaluated in spanwise rotating channel flow and in flat plate boundary layers. The sensitivity to the Reynolds and rotation numbers is investigated. The results are compared with DNS data. © 2006 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
