i have run my case with "nu nu [ 0 2 -1 0 0 0 0 ] 0.01"
Now i want to change Reynolds number
for example i want to rum my case with reynolds number 60 what can i do?
i am a little bit confused with the tutorial!
Check the definition of Reynolds number. Your flow field is characterized by the kinematic viscosity (nu) but also some characteristic velocity (probably through your boundary conditions) and length (through some aspect of your mesh). You'll need all three to calculate (or change) your Reynolds number.
Re = (4 Rh U)/ν
because i know U =1m/s and i know Re for example Re= 50
i know Rh =1^2/4 (non-cylindrical conductors)
ν= 1*1/50 = 0.02
"nu nu [ 0 2 -1 0 0 0 0 ] 0.01" i suppose if i want to run my case with Re= 50 i will change 0.01 with 0.02 is this right ?
you are right with the new kinematic viscosity. generally you can either change the viscosity or the velocity (for a constant geometry) to change the Reynolds Number. I often prefered changing the velocity for demonstrative purpose, because it is direct proportional.
Sorry if i case any confusion here but can you through light on this.
Suppose my fluid is air and knowing the input boundary condition i extract V and nu for a given Re.
So, what i have done is calculate and place both V and nu for a given Re as my boundary condition.
But does it agree with what ypu said above?
I think there is a conflict in what you said. Before starting the simulation it should be clear if you want to a flow for a specific Re, velocity or
Example: you consider an air flow, nu is given (nu=1.54*E-5 m²/s at 20°C), for one given geometry, the hydraulic diameter is constant and to receive Reynolds Number of e.g. Re=60, -> adjust the velocity in the boundary condition.
