Hi All,

I want to calculate the 16 cells cavity flow manully. I have get the result by OpenFOAM which is so easy to calculate.But I want to know deeply about CFD so I want to calculate it manully.

Generally in most books regarding CFD.We have this u momentum equation:IMAGE 1.

After integration this u momentum in u control volume.and some arrangement(like the book said..)We have IMAGE 2.

1'The problem is when I do it myself.I cannot integrate it ...Does anyone know how to integrate it?(All of the books have neglect the discretisation precedure.)
2'BTW,in IMAGE 1,there is a v in the equation.Why its gone in the discretisation form?

Thanks in advance.

Hi.

1) Check book "Introduction to computational fluid dynamics, the finite volume method" by Versteeg&Malalasekera, you'll find the discretization thoroughly described there.

2) The equation you showed is the discretized form of the u velocity component equation. The equation for v has the exact same form, but substituting deltax by delta y and the corresponding ai,j coefficients. Again check book.

Cheers,
Michujo.

The equation that you have posted is for X direction momentum conservation and the SCALAR unknown there is u. The v that you are talking of is taken care as mass flow through the face. It is similar to treatment of the first u term that is there in the first term i your equation.

Hi michujo and Mitesh,

Thanks for your reply.

Yeah,I am reading that book ,thats super good.But it neglect the discretisation precedure.I am a newbie. So I have to ask for a favor.

I wrote my procedures.I dont know if its rite. could you guys help me to check it out please? Thanks.
