The algebraic kb-equation (Source File: kbalgebraic.F90)


INTERFACE:

    subroutine kbalgebraic(nlev)
DESCRIPTION:

The algebraic equation for $ k_b$ simply assumes equilibrium in (158),

$\displaystyle P_b = \epsilon_b \quad .$ (171)

This equation can be re-written as

$\displaystyle k_b = \dfrac{k_b \epsilon}{k \epsilon_b} \dfrac{k}{\epsilon} P_b = r \dfrac{k}{\epsilon} P_b = c_b \dfrac{k}{\epsilon} P_b \; , \quad$ (172)

where we used the definition of the time scale ratio $ r$ in (66), and assumed that $ r=c_b$ is a constant.
