A transition model for describing wake-induced transition is presented. It is based on the SST turbulence model by Menter, with the k–ω part in low-Reynolds form according to Wilcox, and two dynamic equations for intermittency: one for near-wall-intermittency and one for free-stream-intermittency. The total intermittency factor, which is the sum of the two, multiplies the turbulent viscosity computed by the turbulence model. The quality of the transition model is illustrated on the T106a test cascade using experimental results for flow with low free-stream turbulence intensity and transition in separated state and for flow with high free-stream turbulence intensity and transition in attached state. The unsteady results are presented in S–T diagrams of the shape factor and wall shear stress on the suction side. Results show the capability of the model to capture the basics of unsteady transition.
