Conditionally averaged Navier-Stokes equations are derived to describe transitional flow. The averages are taken during the fraction of time the flow is laminar or turbulent, respectively. Conditional averaging leads both for the laminar and turbulent parts to a set of equations for mass, momentum and energy. The conditioned equations differ from the original Navier-Stokes equations by the presence of source terms which are functions of the intermittency factor, γ. This factor is the extra unknown and is determined by a transport equation. The evolution of γ depends mainly on the turbulence level, pressure gradient and Reynolds-number. The turbulence is described by the classical k-ϵ model. The approach is verified against several test cases, with and without pressure gradients.
