 December 29, 2004, 12:32 centerline in cyl. coord. #1 Daniel Guest   Posts: n/a Hello everyone, I'm trying to develop a fully 3D code in cylindrical coordinates; finite difference; Do you have any suggestion about how dealing with the point on the centerline? I would prefer to avoid the de l'Hopital rule for the singularity, and I believe that maybe one can consider the centerline point in cartesian coordinate...but whatever is the strategy adopted...my question is: how do I choose the planes to which the centerline belong? ( I mean, PHISICALLY, the centeline belongs to all the meridian planes ) Many thanks

I find it easier to implement for arbitrary geometries, including yours.

You will find the method for dealing with singularity. Also do a google search for "cylindrical coordinates" + "lele" + "finite difference" Regards A.S.
