Default Numerics

Hi all,

I trying to mix a scalar in a turbulent flow field in order to estimate mixing times. Now I see a lot of diffusion, maybe too much. How can I distinguish numerical and real turbulent diffusion? I think I need to control the numerical scheme. Where can I do that? Which order is it anyway?

Cheers, Astrid

Who's responding? No one?

In the past, I used CFX-4.2 at the university. Recently, I am saddled with EFD.Lab. Very fancy, but I would like to get more grip on what's behind. To convince at least the customer and my boss......

Hi Astrid,

The difference scheme used is described in section 3.2 of the fundamentals.pdf document, which you can find in the list when you launch EFD from Start/All Programs.
