 July 27, 2004, 20:19 traditional driven cavity #1 Azfarizal Bin Mukhtar Guest   Posts: n/a hai... actually i'm University Teknologi Malaysia's student in last year. so right now i'm doing thesis about traditional driven cavity with different aspect ratio. i'm doing this thesis by use the program force 208(fortran compiler) so can anyone help me about what the effect can we get when using different aspect ratio and what the application can we get from that. For your knowledge my mesh is H=129 and L=129 (square cavity)

Driven-Lid Cavity Problem: Solution and Visualization.", Maciej Matyka , University of Linkoping, CFD Project Report #3, 30.VI.2004 Hope it will be helpful, Best Regards, Maciej Matyka http://panoramix.ift.uni.wroc.pl/~maq/eng/

Of course, the vorticity-streamfunction approach is very simple and less costly. But the physics is maybe very different? So why bothering use two-dimensional? For CFD beginner to practice, it is no harm. But for a real application, I doubt it. Anyone knows people do comparison work between the 2D case and 3D case? That will be very nice and convincing.

I am using 2d cases just to finish the solver and then easly move it into 3d space. Also it is much easier to make efficient visualization for 2d case. And finally - there is a lot of benchmarks over the web for two dimensional codes. Best Regards, Maciej Matyka http://panoramix.ift.uni.wroc.pl/~maq/eng/
