The key aspects for the reliable CFD modelling of exhaust diffusers are addressed in this paper. In order to identify adequate turbulence models a number of 2D diffuser configurations have been simulated using different turbulence models and results have been compared with measurements. An automated procedure for a time- and resource-efficient and accurate prediction of complex diffuser configuration is presented. The adequate definitions of boundary conditions for the diffuser simulation using this procedure are discussed. In the second part of this paper, the CFD procedure is being applied to investigate the role of secondary flow on axial diffusers. Prediction results are discussed and compared with available measurement data.
