Hello,

I'm doing a RANS simulation of a developed turbulent boundary layer on a 3-D flat plate. I've assumed a certain thickness for the BL at the inflow and correspondingly defined the inflow velocity profile.

My question is how can I define a pre-calculated shear stress only at x=0 (to simulate a certain shear stress at a given location of developed BL) while the rest of the plate will remain as no-slip wall. Avoiding this will cause a jump in the shear stress near the LE just like in normal BL development.

Thanks,

Jack

You could make a separate wall boundary for the first element which you define as a slip wall (or a wall with a defined wall shear stress if you prefer). Then the rest of the wall can be a normal wall boundary condition.

Hi Glenn,

I've tried your suggestion but it seems that specifying pre-defined shear on the first cell stripe did not helped much... there's still a jump in the shear stresses distribution near the LE and the solution was poorly converged. What do you think?

Thanks,
Jack

First of all, check your simulation accuracy: Mesh, convergence, time step, etc. Unless they are under control anything could happen.

Assuming they are under control: I would compare the fully developed BL you have generated to one which CFX generates with a simulation. Are they the same?
