FIDAP Cylinder question
I am just starting to become familar with FIDAP and recently I modelled a cylinder with fluid going in one end and fluid leaving the other. Upon, plotting the shear contour plots, I noticed there were variations in shear along the circumferential direction of the cylinder (in particular four points evenly spaced where I created mesh boundaries). This seems to be inconsistent with the knowledge that shear stress should be constant along the circumferential direction for a given R or radius. If any of you know what is the problem, please let me know. Thanks.
