fortran code for taylor green vortexi need fortran code for the initial and boundary condition of taylor green vortex problem...
will be thankful if somone can give me the fortran code in which the initial and boundary conditions are applied.... thanks and regards |

Hello,
the initial and boundary conditions for the Taylor Green Vortex are very simple. It's a 3d domain of size (2*Pi)^3, all bcs are periodic, no magic there. The initial conditions are simple sin/cos analytical functions, see the JFM article of Brachet or the very good phd dissertation of Fauconnier; http://users.ugent.be/~dfauconn/research.htm cheers, cfdnewbie |

Hi,
An example of z-wise Taylor Green vortex initialization in Fortran: (Xf1,Xf2,Xf3) is are space coordinate and Tf is the time. The viscosity had to be setup appropriately. Code:
`!` |

Hey Squirrel,
why do you have a time dependence in your initialization? From what I understand, die Taylor Green Vortex is initialized at t=0 as a sine/cosine function, and then left to develop on its own?!!..... why do you need an exponential damping term in there? thx and cheers cfdnewbie |

You can set Tf to 0 or what you want you will still have TG.
It's useful to have the time in this function for follow the evolution after the initialization. The exponential damping term is here because of the viscosity. You have to set it in function of the viscosity that you have in the problem. By the way HaKu, what is the BCs that you consider ? |

Hey Squirrel, thanks for your reply!
I agree, if you set Tf to zero, you'll get the standard TG initialization. However, your Tf dependence only occurs inside the exponential damping term, so all you would get for Tf > 0 is a damped initial condition, but not an evolution of the TG - which is highly nonlinear... What am I missing? :) |

Hi cfdnewbie,
If you take a TG with characteristic Reynolds number low enough you will have laminar TG and you can follow the evolution ... useful for code validation and stuff like that ... so yes the function give you the evolution. Cheers, |

Hey Squirrel,
alright, that makes sense I guess... I've done some TG runs, all with a Re of 1000 and above, so I really got many many scales and transition to turbulence. I'll set up a run with Re = 10, just for fun, and check against your data... Have you done any turbulent TG calculations? I'd be willing to share some results, in case you are interested... lemme know! cheers, newbie |

No I never done this.
Cheers |

Just an addendum for the guy who started the thread:
don't forget to compute the (incomp.) pressure from the velocity field (insert divergence into momentum eqn) |
