Help Desk NaranDFC writes "I have a turbulence model based on vorticity and streamfunction. I get results for incompressible cases. I have several questions with this model.

1) How can I convert this to a primitive variable based program?
2) How can I convert this to a compressible case?
3) Does the turbulence result in compressible case differ from incompressible case?
4) How can I do shock wave interaction with this turbulence model? Can someone help me with this idea?"
