A transition model for describing bypass transition is presented. It is based on a two-equations k–ω model and a dynamic equation for intermittency factor. The intermittency factor is a multiplier of the turbulent viscosity computed by the turbulence model. Following a suggestion by Menter et al. [1], the start of transition is computed based on local variables. The choice of the Shear-Stress Transport (SST) model instead of a k–ε model is explained. The quality of the transition model, developed on flat plate test cases, is illustrated for cascades.
