 September 28, 2003, 08:29 Re: grid spacing! #3 Bhushan Yadav Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Pratap Thanks My question is for laminar viscous flow over a flat plate or for that matter on any other 2D configuration what is the criteria to choose first grid spacing, stretching function etc.? Does it differ for subsonic flow and hypersonic flow? Regards Bhushan

For the flat wall, the minimum height of grid size is about 0.2/sqrt(Re) to get a good solution at the distance of x=1 from the leading tip of the flat plat. For the flat wall, a high aspect ratio is helpful to stablize the solution, but not essential. For more general problems, you may put 5 grid layers within the boundary layer. Sun

 October 4, 2003, 08:09 Re: Remarks on grid spacing #6 Sun Guest   Posts: n/a The thickness of the boundary layer over a flat wall is about 1/sqrt(Re). If you add 5 grid layers there, then the grid size is 0.2/sqrt(Re). Centainly, you may choose finer grid size. Once I did numerical tests for the problem a few years ago. I noticed that the grid size should be about the value or finer to be able to get a good friction force. The finer grid size improve the accuracy very little. Hope this answers your question. cheers Sun
