Comparisons with experiments have shown that RANS models tend to underpredict the mixing process in shear layers with strong temperature gradients. In the modeling of jet engine’s exhaust systems this leads to an overpredicted potential core length and underestimated turbulence intensity in the free jet. In addition, the calculated efficiency gain is lower than indicated by measurements in mixed turbofan engines. Based on the findings from scale-resolving simulations a correction to the turbulence production term is proposed and compared with two NASA-experiments on hot jets. This correction is implemented in a Reynolds-stress and a k-ε model. The results are in very good agreement with the experimental data.
