 January 14, 2006, 00:08 A question about flow between 2 plates #1 John Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I have a very simple question. I'm trying to verify Poiseuille flow (between 2 flat plates, laminar, with air) but when flow meets the plates at the entrance point on the plate, the velocity won't be zero at that point. The velocity on the plate at entrance will be averaged one (between initail velocity and zero) and caused the velocity profile at entrance region. I'm just a beginner of FLUENT and I really run out of ideas. Appreciate any help!! Thanks

To avoid this problem you can either: 1) use periodic BC at the inlet and outlet. This perfect if you want to study a fully developped flow...you need also to impose a pressure gradient between the inlet and the outlet. 2)you can write an UDF with a defined velocity profile(parabolique or whatever)...with a null velocity at the wall. This good if you want to study the developpement of your flow along the duct or the channel. How long does it take to get a fully developped flow....etc.
