backward facing step
hi all; I am planning to make a simple air flow simulation with a backward facing step geometry (included friction) and searching a done experimental or numerical work (with Fluent) where I can compare my results . I would like to know if any of you already worked with such a geometry? Thanks in advance

Re: backward facing step
Hi Erni,

I just completed my thesis on the Kline-fogleman airfoil (Diamond wing with backward facing step on the windward surface) - so I have some experience with this type of geometry.

I can also advise to look on the - I remeber seeing a tutorial on there for a BFS case.

Cheers, Riaan

kline fogleman 2 from naca 23015

i am currently doing my project on kline fogleman type 2 (with top step) made from a standard naca 23015. i would like to know the fluent settings for the particular profile.
my velocity is about 36 m/s.
pls its very very urgent....
