liddriven cavity using Matlab

Does anyone happen to have a Matlab code for solving the 2D liddriven cavity problem in primitive variables (i.e. pressure and velocity)? I will be so grateful, if you would be able to share it.
Thanks a lot.

does it have to be in primitive variables? It is not difficult at all using streamfuntionvorticity, or streamfunctionvelocity equations.

Thanks Andrew. In fact, I have already solved the problem using vorticitystreamfuntion formulation (which is quite easy), but I'm having some troubles implementing the SIMPLE algorithm (on staggered grid) for this problem in Matlab.

I have you tried using the SIMPLER method? Just out of curiousity, how are you defining the pressure in the cavity? I was reading that the SIMPLE method cannot be used in all situations. Can it be used here? You might need to incorporate the underrelaxation constant.

the problem is, after the coding, i can't get the nice solution. i'm sorry to bother you all, but can you send me the code that's working because my code isn't. I just want to compare or to determine where is my code (matlab or fortran) went wrong. ok. my email: sesenangje@yahoo.com Thanx very much

I have a Hermite FE code used in a paper to appear in IJNMF. It computes the velocity and the pressure as a function of the velocity.

Idris,
I will send the Matlab LDC code for one of the methods to you as attachments. A preprint of the paper describing the method can be found at http://webpages.charter.net/jtholdeman/RevIJNMFart1.pdf .

thanx guys,
i finally created the code myself. it's the matter of boundary condition. if the boundary condition is wrong, the solution also wrong. Actually my task is to solve vorticitystreamfunction equation of a lid driven cavity at steady state(using central finite difference). and not to forget,the relaxation scheme is needed when the reynolds number is very high (Re >1000) Anyway, many thanks to everybody, especially Jonas Holdeman. bye.

It's up to you what you are going to do about it :)

Hi guys, I am a newbie in CFD thing. Currently I am trying to solve the same problem also.
I solved the problem using the stream function formulation, and now I'm trying to solve in in terms of primitive variable (u,v, and p) using projection method. First I tried using the most simple explicit projection method and it turns out the solution diverge, and I also used implicit projection method where the value of velocity field in each time step is iterated first and it still diverge. I don't know whats wrong with the code.. Have any of you tried to solve the problem using Projection method?

thank you very much for posting these codes. but these codes seem to have some problems. it doesnt give correct plot nor correct data. if you have any other simple matlab code for lid driven cavity problem that worked , i would be very grateful.

Hello All,
I'm trying to implement SIMPLE in Finite Volume method in drivencavity flow using C++ in basic variables. Since the problem is steady state, I start out with u=0, v=0, p=0 for all interior nodes. This is causing the code to diverge away to infinity. For high viscosities, the divergence is less pronounced but u doesn't ever become negative in the results as it should. What may be the problem? Is it because I'm using unrelaxed pressure and velocity corrector equations? Thanks in advance.

Hello! I'm a beginner in CFD and coding; I have to solve the lid driven cavity problem for Re = 150 (nondimensionalised). I've used the forward euler scheme in the code, though i'm supposed to use FTCS. I tried implementing it but there were some problems and couldn't get the plot properly. Could someone help me to check if the code and plot are correct? And also how to implement FTCS into the code? It would be really helpful.. Thank you very much!!!

Can anyone explain why the boundary conditions for the vorticity are what they are? I mean what kind of approximation is that for the derivative of psi? Also what scheme is used for calculating the internal nodes of the vorticity? Thanks alot for the help
