Atmospheric Boundary Layer
I am trying to simulate the "Atmospheric Boundary Layer" and solve for temperatur including gravitation, bouyancy and the ideal gas law.

The temperature is decreasing with 1 degrees/100 m from ground.

The pressure is decreasing with 100 Pa/8 m from ground.

I have problems in getting the correct profiles with height in Fluent for pressure and density.

Has anyone done this in Fluent?

Re: Atmospheric Boundary Layer
don't forget to account for the fact that the pressure field solved for in fluent (ps') is really defined by ps' = ps - rho_0*g*z
