I'm using ElmerGUI as cfd software and I want to set up the velocity of the flow (wind). I understand this instruction of a tutorial is to create a parabolic profile of the flow in velocity 1...

Model
BoundaryCondition
Name = Inlet
Navier-Stokes
Velocity 1 = Variable Coordinate 2; Real MATC "4* 1.5 * tx * (0.41-tx)/0.41^2"
Velocity 2 = 0.0
Add
New

I understand that this equation (for a experiment 2D in a channel) "4* 1.5 * tx * (0.41-tx)/0.41^2" represents this profile:


I would need a equation for this kind of profile: That is for a curve of a boundary layer. Someone know how will be the equation for this curve to work with Elmer?

Hi Bitacovir,

I have no access to Elmer manuals at the moment, so forgive me if the syntax is not exact.

Suppose - for example - that your axial velocity, U, is parabolic in the transverse coordinate, y, with
U = 1*y^2 + 2*y + 3
then use

$A = 1.
$B = 2.
$C = 3.
Velocity 1 = Variable Coordinate 2; Real MATC " $A * tx^2 + $B * tx + $C"

Sorry if I omitted a dollar or two...
Rami

Dear Rami:

Thanks a lot. I going to try this suggestion. Currently I was using http://www.comflow.nl/ that is easier to set up Inlet conditions such as profile of wind.

Here one example that I was doing...


Kind Regards.
