12.19.8 Shear Flow Corrections

In the standard $k$- $\omega$ model, you also have the option of including corrections to improve the accuracy in predicting free shear flows. The Shear Flow Corrections option under k-omega Options is enabled by default in the Viscous Model panel, as these corrections are included in the standard $k$- $\omega$ model [ 403]. When this option is enabled, FLUENT will calculate $f^*_{\beta}$ and $f_{\beta}$ using Equations  12.5-16 and 12.5-24, respectively. If this option is disabled, $f^*_{\beta}$ and $f_{\beta}$ will be set equal to 1.
