 December 12, 2002, 14:20 Re: backward facing-step #5 Rat Guest   Posts: n/a Sophie, I wrote a FORTRAN program using finite volume method staggered grid pressure correction with SIMPLE algorithm as part of my cfd msc. The total pipe lenth was 171 units long (in the x direction). It expanded from 10 units (in the y direction) to 20 units (via a one sided step like the one you mean) at a distance of 20 units in the x direction. The fluid was water and it entered the pipe with a parabolic velocity with maximum in centre of 1.5 units per sec. The reatatchment distance was at about 64 units in the x direction (this is 64-20=44 units past the step). Please say if my explanation of the Geomerty is rubbish. I will try again if you wish. Good luck, Rat.
