12.19.7 Transitional Flows

If either of the $k$- $\omega$ models are used, you may enable a low-Reynolds-number correction to the turbulent viscosity by enabling the Transitional Flows option under k-omega Options in the Viscous Model panel. By default, this option is not enabled, and the damping coefficient ( $\alpha^*$ in Equation  12.5-6) is equal to 1.
