A computational study for the evaluation of the current turbulence models for the prediction of a thermal striping in a triple-jet is performed. The tested turbulence models are the two-layer model, the shear stress transport model and the elliptic relaxation model. These three turbulence models are applied to the prediction of the thermal striping in a triple-jet in which detailed experimental data are available. The performances of the tested turbulence models are evaluated through comparisons with the experimental data. The predicted mean and root-mean-square values of the temperature are compared with the experimental data, and the capability of predicting the oscillatory behavior of the ensemble-averaged temperature is investigated. From these works it is shown that only the elliptic relaxation model is capable of predicting the oscillatory behavior of the ensemble-averaged temperature. It is also shown that the elliptic relaxation model predicts best the time-averaged and root-mean-square of the temperature fluctuation. However, this model predicts a slower mixing at the far downstream of the jet.
