3-D FVM momentum, heat, mass transfer in Matlab
Greetings everyone. I am writing Matlab (for now) code for a 3-D FVM study involving momentum, heat and mass transfer. I am following the SIMPLE method as outlined in the Versteeg book on FVM. I was working with fellow cfd-online member Michael Moor and he helped get me over my initial hurdle of not being a very experienced programmer. I wrote some code to solve for the examples in Versteeg but I wasn't very good at creating my own code from scratch. With Moor's help, now I feel that I have a strong base and am ready to expand upon his 2-D momentum code. I will next be adding heat transfer (convection) and then ultimately mass transfer to the code. I will then expand to 3-D and hopefully add turbulence as well. I would like to invite anyone on the forum to give comments or suggestions and I would be glad to share my code with anyone who wants to learn. I know I will also need some help debugging my code so I hope some of you will take some time to help me out. I hope to hear from you guys soon.
