Default backward facing step
Posts: n/a
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

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
