Hi everyone,

i faced up a problem on my matlab code related to fluid flow over a horizontal plate by boundary layer theorem. I found nodal equations and wrote a script to solve it but it didnt work. I really dont understand why it did not work. I controlled it many times and i could not find any problem with code. I will be crazy. Are there someone can help me on this code?

Boundary Layer Equations for Fluid Flow

1.u(du/dx)+v(du/dy)=mu(d^2u/dy^2) (momentum eq.)
2.du/dx+dv/dy=0 (continuity eq.)

Code at below;

clear all
clc
x1=0; %initial x value
x2=0.1; %final x value (lenght of the domain)
y1=0; %initial y value
y2=0.1; %final y value
dv=1.307*10^-6; %kinematic viscosity
n=100; %number of volumes and also nodes
g=5; %initial guess
Q=g*ones(n,n); %initial Q values for each node
U=g*ones(n+1,n+1); %initial U values at surfaces
V=g*ones(n+1,n+1); %initial V values at surfaces
Uinf=4; %U infinity m/s
maxerrq=1;
maxerrv=1;
h=(x2-x1)/n; %dx=dy=h the number of nodes
D=dv/h; %kinematic viscosity over step
k=0;

while maxerrq>10^-6 && maxerrv>10^-6
maxerrq=0;
maxerrv=0;
k=k+1;
Qold=Q;

for j=1:n
U(1,j)=Uinf;
U(j,n)=Uinf;
end

for i=1:n
V(i,1)=0;
U(i,1)=0;
end

Vold=V;
Uold=U;

for i=2:n-1
for j=2:n-1
api=(U(i+1,j)+V(i,j+1)+2*D);
aei=0;
awi=U(i,j);
ani=D;
asi=D+V(i,j);
Si=0;
Q(i,j)=(aei*Q(i+1,j)+awi*Q(i-1,j)+ani*Q(i,j+1)+asi*Q(i,j-1)+Si)/api;
end
end
