This paper explores the applicability of several variations of the v2-f turbulence model to circulation control flows. The effects of modifying the model to capture nonlinear eddy viscosity effects and streamline curvature effects are assessed. Results indicate that the v2-f turbulence model is capable producing more physically accurate results for circulation control flow fields than common modern turbulence modeling techniques.
