Boundary layer thickness
Hi all

I work with a problem in FLUENT that I must compute boundary layer thickness, and displacement and momentum thickness accurately.

Would you have know a method or udf that can help me in it? (specially in unstructured mesh)

Thanks in advance for your favor

Fluent solves the complete Navier Stokes equations and not the Boundary layer equations, so I don't think you can accurately calculate the BL thickness with Fluent.

You need for sure a boundary-layer code if you want these two quantities accurately calculated.

Thanks a lot for your reply

Would you know any boundary layer code help me?

Best regards
