A transition model for describing wake-induced transition is presented based on the SST turbulence model by Menter and two dynamic equations for intermittency: one for near-wall intermittency and one for free-stream intermittency. In the Navier-Stokes equations, 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 for different levels of inlet free-stream turbulence intensity. The unsteady results are presented in space-time diagrams of shape factor, wall shear stress, momentum thickness and intermittency on the suction side. Results show the capability of the model to capture the physics of unsteady transition. Inevitable shortcomings are also revealed.
