Abstract This paper presents an evaluation of the capability of turbulence models available in the commercial CFD code FLUENT 6.0 for their application to hydrofoil turbulent boundary layer separation flow at high Reynolds numbers. Four widely applied two-equation RANS turbulence models were assessed through comparison with experimental data at Reynolds numbers of 8.284 x 10(6) and 1.657 x 10(7). They were the standard k-epsilon model, the realizable k-epsilon model, the standard k-omega model and the shear-stress-transport (SST) k-omega model. It has found that the realizable k-epsilon turbulence model used with enhanced wall functions and near-wall modelling techniques, consistently provides superior performance in predicting the flow characteristics around the hydrofoil.
