A new low Reynolds number nonlinear second moment turbulence closure was introduced to analyze a square sectioned 180.deg. bend flow. Inclusion of nonlinear return to isotropy term and cubic mean pressure strain term has brought out a marked improvement in the level of agreement with measured velocity profiles. Optimization of present closure was performed by comparison of computed velocity profiles with the experimental ones with variation of nonlinear return to isotropy term and quadratic and cubic pressure-strain model. Progressive vortex breakdown due to the interaction of primary and secondary flows was well captured by using the optimized second moment turbulence closure.
