 May 18, 2007, 06:14 Re: Separation #2 Farhat Guest   Posts: n/a well you can judge from the streamlines, which you can plot using DISPLAY option in the menu.

 May 18, 2007, 07:28 Re: Separation #3 Giannis Guest   Posts: n/a How can I do that? Which option is it? Is it the option path lines under display? Im in that menu but I cant actually display them, particularly what do I have to do? By the way, im running a 2-d simulation, does this make a difference?

 May 19, 2007, 02:04 Re: Separation #4 Matt Guest   Posts: n/a The common characteristics of 2D flow separations are:- 1) The boundary layer detaches from the wall 2) Occurrences of reversed flows and swirls When the boundary layer detaches from the wall, a wake of slow moving air flow is formed downstream of the body. This can be illustrated using velocity contours and streamlines. Furthermore, there will be reversed flows, just downstream of the separation point. Depending on the severity of the separation, swirls might occur. Both can be illustrated with velocity vectors.
