This paper presents a manufactured solution (MS), resembling a two-dimensional, steady, wallbounded, incompressible, turbulent flow for RANS codes verification. The specified flow field satisfies mass conservation, but requires additional source terms in the momentum equations. To also allow verification of the correct implementation of the turbulence models transport equations, the proposed MS exhibits most features of a true near-wall turbulent flow. The model is suited for testing six eddyviscosity turbulence models: the one-equation models of Spalart and Allmaras and Menter; the standard two-equation k–∈; model and the low-Reynolds version proposed by Chien; the TNT and BSL versions of the k–ω model.
