 December 22, 2000, 05:22 Blockage in CFD code #1 Roued Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I am currently playing with the CFD code in that comes with the book by Peric and Ferziger. I would very much like to implement a method for setting blockage internally in the domain. Can any one give me a hint on how to do this ? What is the best way ? Thanks in advance. Regards Roued

Make Sp very large (say 1e25) and similarly Su= 1e25 (must be equal to value of Sp) for the grid point for which u want to freeze the value. U can initialise the value required and it will remain unchanged throuthout the iterations. if u put Phi_p =0 for u,v,w u will create islands in the flow path. Specify these values for all the grid-points that u want to freeze. Note: for equations having large value of variables this may blow up due to overflow (typically k-e) Some care is required in grid spacing at blocked areas. Hope this helps Abhijit Tilak.
