 March 1, 2006, 23:51 Reynolds Number for Nozzle #1 Shyam Guest   Posts: n/a I want to compute the reynolds number for a Nozzle. The information I have at nozzle exit conditions is Mach number M=0.90, Velocity U=285 m/s, Total Temp. T0=290K, Diameter D=0.56 in, Lip thickness 0.03 in. Can anyone please help me in finding the Reynolds number... Can I just go by the Re based on diameter? I want to find the first grid point distance from the wall for the grid representing the flow inside the nozzle. Thanks, Shyam

 March 2, 2006, 08:15 Re: Reynolds Number for Nozzle #4 Jim Guest   Posts: n/a In order to assess whether you can assume a 1-D flow, we need more info about the shape of the nozzle. Is it conical, fluted ??? Also, assuming your talking about calculating your y+ value, why would someone come up with a turbulent wall function for a laminar flow? The method you use to calculate y+ depends on the turbulence model you are using. Getting the right y+ value is often an iterative process anyway, so make an estimate based on Re, pull out what y+ is, and adjusted it until you get something sensible.
