An analysis of developing and fully developed turbulent flow was carried out when different techniques have been used in a zone close to the solid wall. In this paper, wall element technique based on the finite element method (FEM) has been adopted and compared with other techniques for determination of confined turbulent flow with a one equation model used to depict the turbulent viscosity is applied to a smooth straight channel.
