The aim of this paper is to assess the usefulness of the Local Correlation Transition Model (LCTM, Langtry and Menter, 2009), implemented in the finite volume solver ReFRESCO (Rosetti et al., 2016), for application to engineering problems involving laminar and transitional Reynolds number regimes. The study will be focusing on modelling the flow around 3D infinite foils and underwater glider swept hydrofoils to analyse transition to turbulence as well as the nature of the separation bubble.
