To predict turbulence in porous media, a new approach is discussed. By doubly (both volume and Reynolds) averaging Navier-Stokes equations, there appear three unknown Reynolds stress terms in the momentum equation. They are namely the Reynolds stress, the sub-volume-scale (SVS) stress and the micro-scale stress, in the present study. For the Reynolds stress, the two-component-limit (TCL) second moment closure is applied whereas the eddy viscosity models are applied to the other stresses: a Smagorinsky-type model and a one-equation eddy viscosity model, respectively for the SVS and the micro-scale stresses. For obtaining some model coefficients, microscopic flow simulations for modelled porous media are also performed. The presently proposed model is evaluated in porous wall channel flows with reasonable accuracy though further development is required.
