 September 8, 2005, 14:24 tricky flat plate laminar flow #1 sarat Guest   Posts: n/a hi all, I have done the simulation of laminar flow over a flat plate but the results are very weird. i gave the BCs: 1. velocity inlet at the entry & freestream(inx-direction) 2. pressure outlet at the outlet with 0 gauge pressure 3. wall with no slip condition only the flow equations were solved but the cf values along the wall as compared to the blasius solution are highly ridiculous. besides, the velocity at some points exceeds the freestream velocity....I know this is very basic... please help.... thanx in advance.............sarat

Overshooting is duo to your grid quality, espicilly aspect ratio that results in numerical diffusion.Kind of a paradox to the refined requirment. Has to trade off. Do not remember in fluent manual what is the recommended aspect ratio.

I would use a refined grid and then check it. I think the recommended aspect ratio is 1.07 thankx...sarat
