This paper is concerned with the study of performance of popular turbulence models used in the CFD analysis. Turbulence models considered for evaluation include the eddy viscosity models and the Reynolds stress model. The recent k-ε-v2 -f model recommended for a flow with separation is also studied. Evaluation of the turbulence models in the present study focuses on a three-dimensional flow field development with adverse pressure gradient and flows that simulate wall-bounded turbulence. Numerical calculations are performed using SIMPLE based algorithm. Nowadays, decelerating flow in a diffuser is assessed by numerical simulations and the validation is done with experimental results. A comparison of the numerical results and the experimental data are presented. The main objective of the comparison is to obtain information on how well the numerical simulations representing the flow field with the standard turbulence models, are able to reproduce the experimental data.
