Lid-driven flow data
I need some help on 3d lid-driven flow data for code validation. I suppose Ghia's data was 2d, is there any classicla results for 3d case? It would be best if someone can point me to a database on internet where I can download the data. Thanks a lot.

Hi Jin Li,

Check out this site: (For Re=3000,3D results are given),3d results are given) Re=10000) this site, you will see a paper in .ps format on "digital physics simulation of lid-driven cavity flow" by christopher teixeira)

The classic paper of Patankar & Spalding, Int. J. Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol. 15, pp. 1787-1806(1972) I don't remeber whether he had reported 3D cases. His SIMPLE algorithm was for 3D formulation.

Hope this helps.

Regards gita
