 October 23, 2019, 04:36 Quasi 1D nozzle flow - John Anderson #1 New Member   Pritam Gole Join Date: Aug 2017 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 9 Hi, I am trying to code the Quasi 1D nozzle problem as in John D Anderson's CFD book. I was having trouble understanding the non dimensionalising the distance. It is given as x' = x/L where x is the distance along the nozzle and L is the length of the nozzle. By definition, that would mean that x' can only vary from 0 to 1. However, in the book everytime he mentions x' or x/L, it varies from 0 to 3. Can anyone help me in understanding how the range of x' is from 0 to 3 and let me know if I have missed something? Thanks in advance.

I think if you would carefully read and work the problem your concerns would be relaxed.
