The difference between Laminar model and DNS at lo

Hi,all, I am newer in CFD. Laminar model is preferable when I choose a mathematical model for low Re problem in Fluent(for example, channel flow less than 2000). But I cannot make a differnce betwwen laminar model and DNS at low Re because here laminar model solves the N-S equation directly. Can I say that Laminar model equals to DNS at low Re given that the mesh resolution is suffcient small? Many thanks!

You can say that.

Thanks. However, if Re is greater than 2000, how about the difference given the mesh resolution is sufficent small? If it is okay, can we say that laminar model equals to DNS?

Hi!

Be carefull with the phrase suficient resolution when talking about DNS...That means about 10^10 nodes for Re=2000 (Re^3)...

Otherwise you can say that...
