A Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes solver has been equipped with two different transition prediction and modeling techniques for automatic transition prediction on general three-dimensional geometrical configurations. The first technique is a streamline-based approach that applies an automated local linear stability code, the eN-method and a simplified two-N-factor strategy and is applicable with any kind of turbulence model. The second technique is a transition transport equation approach and uses the γ-Ret,heta model. The standard γ-Reθ,t model has been extended by a modeling approach that captures transition due to crossflow instabilities. The extended model can be applied to three-dimensional configuration exhibiting crossflow transition whereas the original γ-Reθ,t model only captures streamwise transition mechanisms. The paper focuses on a three-dimensional inclined 6:1 prolate spheroid which can be considered as a simplified fuselage configuration. For a number of years this configuration has become a standard basic three-dimensional test case for transition prediction approaches and has been used in a number of international workshops and research activities. The focus of the paper is the validation of the two transition modeling approaches for six different angles of attack using two different turbulence models, a standard two-equation eddy-viscosity model and a differential Reynolds-stress model. The simulation results from the two approaches have been compared against each other and to the available experimental data. The comparisons highlight as many qualitative and quantitative similarities and agreements as they reveal quantitative differences and deviations of specific details.
