 June 13, 2008, 04:05 Hello i am trying to model #1 Member   srinath Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Champaign, USA Posts: 90 Rep Power: 6 Hello i am trying to model supersonic flow over a ramp. These are my bc's and domain. Inlet--supersonic inlet (P,U,T) specified. Outlet--Extrapolated outlet (dp/dn,du/dn.dT/dn=0), since flow at outlet is supersonic. top of channel--symmetry(to simulate an infinite domain). bottom of channel before ramp--symmetry. ramp--slip. When i run the case with these bc's, the solution blows up. I would appreciate it if someone tell me what i am doing wrong Regards Srinath

 June 16, 2008, 08:43 Hi Srinath I used the same #3 New Member   Varun Vikas Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 17 Rep Power: 6 Hi Srinath I used the same conditions and could not solve the problem - the solutiuon blew up. I used U = 2, p = 1, T = 1, Cv = 1.785, R = 0.714. What values didi you use? How far above the ramp did u put you rfarfiedl condition? Regards Varun

 June 16, 2008, 09:58 Hi Vikas I converted everyt #4 Member   srinath Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Champaign, USA Posts: 90 Rep Power: 6 Hi Vikas I converted everything to SI, since otherwise comparison won't be correct. R=.714,Cv=1.785 does not correspond to air, for which we have test results. Domain is exactly as on the nasa webpage http://www.lerc.nasa.gov/WWW/wind/va...dge/wedge.html with symmetry bc at top of domain. I used R=287(for air), then get Cv(assume gamma=1.4), then a, then U = 2.5*a similarly convert P,T etc in NASA problem to SI Note that i ran it for Mach no=2.5(not 2.0), Angle was underpredicted by about 5 degrees. Regards Srinath
