 Forum: FLUENT August 13, 2015, 17:58 Replies: 34 Views: 2,236 Posted By sbaffini I mean, there is no node implied, just cells. ... I mean, there is no node implied, just cells. However, for the record, in a finite difference setting you would have used the source term for each of the nodes you are actually solving for.
 Forum: FLUENT August 13, 2015, 17:54 Replies: 34 Views: 2,236 Posted By sbaffini Well, in finite volume, the source term is... Well, in finite volume, the source term is applied on a cell by cell basis, just like the pressure gradient. This means that it is simply applied to all the cells.

Dear Ahmed, what do you mean by something wrong in the unsteady part? You just need to add this as classical source term (Fluent knows how to do that) under cell zone conditions. I am on the...

At this point, i suggest using both approaches (k-eps+WF and k-w) to evaluate the differences, unless you have a very specific reason to use k-eps. I insist on this because, nowadays, there are...

Consider a full 3D computation; wall functions are used on a minimum part of the domain. Still, they are gratly influencing your results. When i look...

This is not wrong per se (also, the k-eps model actually requires the wall function as it cannot be integrated down to the wall). What is problematic, in my opinion, is that your whole model is a...

You either perform outer iterations or simply use previous values (for Up). As i said, you can use an implicit approach with no wall function and add the...

You will end up with something like f(u_*)=0, which needs to be solved iteratively for u_* (e.g., by Newton-Raphson).

They are part of a larger piece of code, so some parts might not look clear (i.e., the data structures), but the logic is there. The...

Usually, for convex polyhedral(polygonal) cells in 3D(2D), a much faster test is the triangle(segment)/segment intersection test between: 1) The segment connecting the given point and the cell...

However, the following paper: http://www.dept.ku.edu/~cfdku/papers/1999-AIAAJ.pdf has the answer for arbitrary convex polygons/polyhedra.

I don't know how much debate there is on this topic but, in my opinion, there are serious advantages in NOT using ghost cells: 1) Ghost cells require extrapolation. The state in the extrapolated...

Long story short: 1) Most DNS use a fixed mass flow rate (instead of pressure gradient), that' s why the pressure gradient is not specified. 2) If your channel has height H=2, rho=1,...

Why do you expect the mass flow rate at the pressure outlet to be different from the inlet one? However, the task is more difficult than the way you approached it. Both inlet and outlet surfaces...

Roughness effects can only be included in wall function models, independently from the specific approach (IBM, body fitted, etc.). The underlying reasoning is that if you cannot resolve the wall...

The wall function is just a Black box which is invoked for a cell face which is a wall in order to obtain the wall stress to use as boundary condition. Thus, for a given cell, it is invoked...

On a uniform grid, a courant equal to 1 should give you the exact solution for an explicit euler-1st order upwind scheme, at least in the linear case. Maybe there is some problem in your scheme.
