# Closure of RANS Equations - Lesson 5

In the previous lesson, you were introduced to the RANS equations. We saw how the Navier-Stokes equations can be transformed to the RANS equations. However, during this transformation, we ran into the RANS closure problem. In this lesson, we will discuss different ways we can address it.
