non-dimensionalisation
 
I have done simulation on flow in a cavity. In Fluent, we get stream functions in kg/s. I want to non-dimensionalize the stream function. How to do this?:confused:

hmmm, yes I can see how this fits into the meshing problem with fluent

[mu * L] = kg/(ms) * m = kg/s

so dividing by the dynamic viscosity and a length scale seems like a good choice of
parameters to me.
