 March 23, 2004, 22:19 Incompressible flow past a 2D rectangular cylinder #1 Niru Guest   Posts: n/a For incompressible flow (water) past a 2d rectangular cylinder, what should be value of non dimensionalized pressure( if rho*U*U has been used for non dimensionalizing)at the first stagnation point? Rn = 80000

The question is though whether the flow is really 2-D or not? (I asked about this myself a while back, I was talking about much lower RE though) http://www.cfd-online.com/Forum/main...cgi?read=26638 -- Jarmo

Is there any refrence which gives the theory about this? It would be really nice if I could get some electronic paper or anything related to this.

hey I'm working on simulation of convection in a horizontal rectangular channel conatin eat source like electronics compounents using fluent but i'm new in FLUENT
may u help me to simulate my problem using any code
i have experimental results to valid my results
