Time step help in Explicit method
Hello everyone ,
I have wrote a code for solving compressible navier stokes code over a flat plate (same as given in the Anderson CFD Book) . when i tried simulating it with free stream conditions at higher altitude for example
Plate length of 1e-5 encounters slip regime above 10km altitude , which means that slip boundary conditions should be incorporated to get proper results , and the code blows up for free stream conditions above 20km (because transition regime comes into play )
Am i correct guys ? Navier stokes equation works only for continuum regime right ?
So i am using MACCORMACK Method with the time step given in book . Its because of the time step , which brings up complex numbers and its causes the program to stop .
What should i do now ?
Any suggestion will be of great help
Thanks in advance
While the NS equations are only valid in the continuum regime, a NS solver should still be able to produce a (wrong) solution in the rarefied regime.
If your NS code diverges for higher Knudsen numbers, there must be something wrong with the code.
I checked the code and i find that i implemented the time step (stability criteria) wrong . This produces the complex number first which makes the solver to blow up for higher Knudsen numbers
Take a look at my time step , I implemented it wrong .
