<hr />
<div>The Reynolds number characterises the relative importance of inertial and viscous forces in a flow. It is important in determining the state of the [[flow]], whether it is [[laminar]] or [[turbulent]]. At high Reynolds numbers flows generally tend to be [[turbulent]], which was first recognized by [[Osborne Reynolds]] in his famous [[pipe flow experiments]]. Consider the [[momentum equation]] which is given below<br />
<br />
:<math><br />
\frac{\partial}{\partial t}\left( \rho u_i \right) +<br />
\frac{\partial}{\partial x_j}<br />
\left[ \rho u_i u_j + p \delta_{ij} \right] = \frac{\partial}{\partial x_j} \tau_{ij}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
The terms on the right are the [[inertial forces]] and those on the left correspond to [[viscous forces]]. If <math>U</math>, <math>L</math>, <math>\rho</math> and <math>\mu</math> are the reference values for [[velocity]], [[length]], [[density]] and [[dynamic viscosity]], then<br />
<br />
inertial force ~ <math>\frac{\rho U^2}{L}</math><br />
<br />
viscous force ~ <math>\frac{\mu U}{L^2}</math><br />
<br />
Their ratio is the Reynolds number, usually denoted as <math>Re</math><br />
<br />
:<math><br />
Re = \frac{\mbox{inertial force}}{\mbox{viscous force}} = \frac{\rho U L}{\mu}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
In terms of the kinematic viscosity<br />
<br />
:<math><br />
\nu = \frac{\mu}{\rho}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
the Reynolds number is given by<br />
<br />
:<math><br />
Re = \frac{U L}{\nu}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
==Reynolds number as a ratio of time scales==<br />
<br />
Consider an impulsively started flat plate moving in its own plane with [[velocity]] <math>U</math>. Due to the [[no-slip condition]] on the plate a [[boundary layer]] gradually develops on the plate. At time <math>t</math>, the thickness of the [[boundary layer]] is of the order of <math>\sqrt{\nu t}</math> (see Batchelor(1967), section 4.3). Let <math>L</math> be the [[characteristic length scale]]. The time taken for [[viscous]] and [[convective]] effects to travel a distance <math>L</math> is<br />
<br />
:<math><br />
T_{v} = \frac{L^2}{\nu}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
and<br />
<br />
:<math><br />
T_{c} = \frac{L}{U}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
The ratio of viscous to convective time scales is<br />
<br />
:<math><br />
\frac{ T_{v} }{ T_{c} } = \frac{(L^2/\nu)}{(L/U)} = \frac{UL}{\nu} = Re<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Thus the Reynolds number is a measure of the viscous and convective time scales. A large Reynolds number means that viscous effects propagate slowly into the [[fluid]]. This is the reason why boundary layers are thin in high Reynolds number flows because the fluid is being convected along the [[flow]] direction at a much faster rate than the spreading of the [[boundary layer]], which is normal to the [[flow]] direction.<br />

<hr />
<div>== Discussion regarding "Ansys FAQ" ==<br />
Hi,<br />
<br />
I really dislike this entry. I don't feel that it is in accordance with ''any'' of the [[CFD-Wiki:Policy ]] community guidelines, for instance it is not NPOV, I cannot verify it (no references or citations are provided) and I have no idea whether ANSYS may consider this information proprietary. <br />
<br />
I think that, at best it should be zoned to a forum of it's own and removed from the educational resource that is CFD-Wiki.<br />
<br />
Any opinions appreciated!<br />

== Me, Myself and I ==<br />
I am a graduate Mechanical Engineer from [http://www.nuigalway.ie/ National University of Ireland, Galway]. I spent three years at the [http://www.ncbes.ie/ National Centre of Biomedical Engineering and Science] on a research project on [[laminar flow]] over [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endothelial_cells endothelial cells]. Unfortunately, this project has been discontinued for a variety of reasons, primarily due to lack of funding. Thankfully, before I left I was granted my first [[patent]] for a [[technology]] to harness energy from ocean [[waves]].<br />
<br />
My interests are computer programming, fluid dynamics, and education. I am a fervent believer that fluid dynamics is under-appreciated and under-used in understanding the world around us. I believe that this project may be a huge benefit to students, educators, engineers and scientists (first) and as it grows, it will become of interest to the general public.<br />
<br />
I am currently looking for a job (any job) as a [[Mechanical Engineer]] if any kind person is offering...<br />

<div>== Concept ==<br />
A common method of solving an [[elliptic problem]] is to add a term containing [[first derivative]] of time to the equation and solve the resulting [[parabolic equation]] until a [[steady state]] is reached. At this stage, the [[time derivative]] is zero and the solution represents the original problem.<br />

<br />
'''Fig. 1:''' Ahmed model. Dimensions are in mm (Fig. from [4])<br />
<br />
<br />
'''Description of the test case:'''<br />
The Ahmed body (Fig. 1) was first defined and its characteristics described in the experimental work of Ahmed [1]. Two configurations with slant angles of 25°and 35°are considered as a test case. For this configurations detailed LDA Measurements have been performed by Becker, Lienhart and Stoots [2,3] in the [[LSTM]] low-speed [[wind-tunnel]] with a cross-section of 1.87x1.4 m2 (width x height) with a bulk [[velocity]] of 40 m/s. The [[test-section]] of the [[wind-tunnel]] was 3/4 open (only ground plate present). The distance between the body and the plate representing the ground is 50 mm. <br />
<br />

* As commercial CFD codes become more and more capable, CFD design agencies are more and more pressed to reconsider the cost vs. benefit of developing and maintaining in-house codes.

<hr />
<div>The ratio of [[specific heats]] (also known as ''adiabatic index''), usually denoted by <math>\gamma</math>, is the ratio of [[specific heat]] at constant [[pressure]] to the [[specific heat]] at constant [[volume]]. {{Fact}}<br />
<br />
:<math><br />
\gamma \equiv \frac{C_p}{C_v}<br />
</math><br />
<br />
The adiabatic index always exceeds unity; for a [[polytropic gas]] it is constant.{{fact}} For [[monatomic gas]] <math>\gamma=5/3</math>, and for [[diatomic gases]] <math>\gamma=7/5</math>, at ordinary [[temperatures]].{{fact}} For air its value is close to that of a diatomic gas, 7/5 = 1.4.{{fact}}<br />

Sometimes <math>\kappa</math> is used instead of <math>\gamma</math> to denote the [[specific heat ratio]].{{fact}}<br />

<hr />
<div>== Introduction ==<br />
<br />
Adams' methods are a subset of the family of [[multi-step methods]] used for the [[numerical integration]] of initial value problems in [[Ordinary Differential Equations]] (ODE's). [[Multi-step methods]] benefit from the fact that the computations have been going on for some time, and use previously computed values of the solution (BDF methods), or the right hand side (Adams' methods), to approximate the solution at the next step.<br />
<br />
Adams' methods begin by the integral approach,<br />
<br />
:<math><br />
y^\prime = f(t,y)<br />
</math><br />
<br />
<br />
:<math><br />
y(t_{N+1}) = y(t_{n}) + \int_{t_n}^{t_{n+1}} y^\prime (t) dt = y(t_{n}) + \int_{t_n}^{t_{n+1}} f(t,y(t)) dt<br />
</math><br />
<br />
Since <math>f</math> is unknown in the interval <math>t_n</math> to <math>t_{n+1}</math> it is approximated by an [[interpolating]] [[polynomial]] <math>p(t)</math> using the previously computed steps <math>t_{n},t_{n-1},t_{n-2} ...</math> and the current step at <math>t_{n+1}</math> if an implicit method is desired.{{fact}}<br />

<div>== Introduction ==<br />
<br />
A classical [[test problem]] is [[numerical simulation]] of a [[laminar]]/[[turbulent]] flow of an [[incompressible viscous fluid]] in a square cavity with the upper moving [[boundary]]. It has long since been a "testing area" for approbation of [[approximation schemes]] for terms in initial equations as well as of [[computational models]] and methods. A large number of calculation data concerning this problem have been accumulated.{{Fact}} Therefore, it makes sense to return periodically to the solution of the problem verification and analysis of the [[computational codes]] developed. <br />
<br />
[[Image:Cavity2d.jpg]]<br />
<br />
== History ==<br />
<br />
The problem of a circulation flow in a cavity is of interest because of the relatively low level of [[computational resources]] required for its solution. In this case, the [[control volume]] is limited. Therefore, a small number of [[grid nodes]] are required and simple [[boundary conditions]] are set.{{fact} In the earliest renditions of this problem, the [[Navier–Stokes equations]] were transformed into [[vorticity–stream function]] variables for economy of [[computational resources]]. were obtained. The calculations were performed by brigades of specialists without the use of computers.{{fact}} <br />
<br />
When computers appeared, the indicated problem remained, as before, the focus of attention of specialists developing computational methods. A detailed analysis of methods concerning the problem considered that appeared in the period from the 1960s to the late 1980s is given in a set of monographs (for example 1, 2, 3). One of the first works in the area of numerical investigation of a viscous-fluid flow in a square cavity began thirty years ago [1] on a BESM-4 computer containing 21 × 21 grid nodes in one memory cube. At that time, in the mid-1970s, high-accuracy Arakava schemes of the second and fourth order of approximation and nonuniform grids were used for the first time for solving [[Navier–Stokes equations]]. <br />
<br />
One of the most important scientific achievements of the [[CFD]] in the 1980's was a numerical solution of the [[diffusion]] problem, since this problem is associated with errors in approximation of [[convective]] terms of equations. In simulation of [[separation flows]], a necessary condition for obtaining an exact result is the use of schemes with a [[low numerical viscosity]] (upwind schemes of the second and higher orders of approximation of the type of the [[Leonard scheme]] with [[quadratic interpolation]], the [[Agarval scheme]], and others) for representation of [[convective terms]] in [[transfer equations]].{{fact}} At the same time, it has been established that the first-order schemes give erroneous solutions at high [[Reynolds numbers]] even in the case where multi-grid methods are used.{{fact}} <br />
<br />
Progress in computational engineering and, especially, widespread use of personal computers in the 1980's and subsequent years have made it possible, first of all, to develop universal first-wave codes of applied programs, such as [[PHOENIX]], [[FLOW3D]], and [[FIDAP]], and then more modern information products / commercial [[CFD]] codes such as [[FLUENT]], [[StarCD]], and [[CFX]]. When computers with a large [[memory]] and a high [[CPU]] speed appeared, instead of the [[Navier–Stokes equations]] in [[transformed variables]], [[Navier–Stokes equations]] written in [[physical variables]] — Cartesian velocity or pressure components — began to be predominantly used.{{fact}} This made it possible to increase the number of computational cells (by an order of magnitude and more) and to increase the resolution in the near-wall region for this problem.<br />

<div>== Introduction ==<br />
<br />
A classical [[test problem]] is [[numerical simulation]] of a [[laminar]]/[[turbulent]] flow of an [[incompressible viscous fluid]] in a square cavity with the upper moving [[boundary]]. It has long since been a "testing area" for approbation of [[approximation schemes]] for terms in initial equations as well as of [[computational models]] and methods. A large number of calculation data concerning this problem have been accumulated.{{Fact}} Therefore, it makes sense to return periodically to the solution of the problem verification and analysis of the [[computational codes]] developed. <br />

== History ==<br />
<br />
The problem of a circulation flow in a cavity is of interest because of the relatively low level of [[computational resources]] required for its solution. In this case, the [[control volume]] is limited. Therefore, a small number of [[grid nodes]] are required and simple [[boundary conditions]] are set.{{fact} In the earliest renditions of this problem, the [[Navier–Stokes equations]] were transformed into [[vorticity–stream function]] variables for economy of [[computational resources]]. were obtained. The calculations were performed by brigades of specialists without the use of computers.{{fact}} <br />
<br />
When computers appeared, the indicated problem remained, as before, the focus of attention of specialists developing computational methods. A detailed analysis of methods concerning the problem considered that appeared in the period from the 1960s to the late 1980s is given in a set of monographs (for example 1, 2, 3). One of the first works in the area of numerical investigation of a viscous-fluid flow in a square cavity began thirty years ago [1] on a BESM-4 computer containing 21 × 21 grid nodes in one memory cube. At that time, in the mid-1970s, high-accuracy Arakava schemes of the second and fourth order of approximation and nonuniform grids were used for the first time for solving [[Navier–Stokes equations]]. <br />
<br />
One of the most important scientific achievements of the [[CFD]] in the 1980's was a numerical solution of the [[diffusion]] problem, since this problem is associated with errors in approximation of [[convective]] terms of equations. In simulation of [[separation flows]], a necessary condition for obtaining an exact result is the use of schemes with a [[low numerical viscosity]] (upwind schemes of the second and higher orders of approximation of the type of the [[Leonard scheme]] with [[quadratic interpolation]], the [[Agarval scheme]], and others) for representation of [[convective terms]] in [[transfer equations]].{{fact}} At the same time, it has been established that the first-order schemes give erroneous solutions at high [[Reynolds numbers]] even in the case where multi-grid methods are used.{{fact}} <br />
<br />
Progress in computational engineering and, especially, widespread use of personal computers in the 1980's and subsequent years have made it possible, first of all, to develop universal first-wave codes of applied programs, such as [[PHOENIX]], [[FLOW3D]], and [[FIDAP]], and then more modern information products / commercial [[CFD]] codes such as [[FLUENT]], [[StarCD]], and [[CFX]]. When computers with a large [[memory]] and a high [[CPU]] speed appeared, instead of the [[Navier–Stokes equations]] in [[transformed variables]], [[Navier–Stokes equations]] written in [[physical variables]] — Cartesian velocity or pressure components — began to be predominantly used.{{fact}} This made it possible to increase the number of computational cells (by an order of magnitude and more) and to increase the resolution in the near-wall region for this problem.<br />
