singularity in axis-symmetric probelm
Does anyone know how to treat the singularity due to (1/r) in an axis-symmetric problem?
In stream-function vorticity method for 2D axis-symmetric problem:
when r->0 both->infinite. If the mesh size becomes small, it is very hard to get a solution unless you use very very small timestep.
Thanks a lot.
Re: singularity in axis-symmetric probelm
Unless I'm overlooking something (always a possibility), the radial velocity (Ur) has to be zero at r = 0 unless a mass source or sink exists at r = 0.
Also, at r = 0 d(Uz)/dr = 0; the Uz velocity must be symmetric about r = 0. This also says that the stream function is a constant (a streamline!) at r = 0.
These two can be combined to give a boundary condition for the vorticity at r = 0.
