The control of turbulent separated flow over the backward-facing step is numerically investigated with various turbulence models ranging from one equation Spalart & Allmaras (1992), two-equation K-ω closures (Wilcox, 1988; Menter, 1993) to a full Reynolds stress transport model based on the Reynolds stress transport Rij -ω model (Deng & Visonneau, 1999). Results are compared with experimental data of Yoshioka et al. (1999) where the flow control was monitoring with alternating suction/injection at the step height. It is shown that the effect of that local perturbation is better represented using the Rij -ω turbulence model.
