Subgrid turbulent mixing

In case of the lateral mixing of momentum, e.g. around the tips of breakwaters and dams, it is recommended to employ the well-known Smagorinsky subgrid model in which the mixing length is assumed to be proportional to the typical grid spacing. The default value for the Smagorinsky constant is 0.2.
