3D driven cavity reference
Ciao! I am in search of reference computations for the 3D incompressible Navier-Stokes eqs in a driven cavity (unit cube with u = 1 on one face and u = v = w = 0 otherwise). Thank you in advance!

Re: 3D driven cavity reference

I hope this paper can be useful:

Ku H.C., Hirsh R.C. Taylor T.D. Pseudospectral Method for solution of the Three Dimensional Incompressible Navier-Stokes Equations // J. Comp. Phys. - 1987. - V.70. - pp.439 - 462.

Re: 3D driven cavity reference
There has been a GAMM workshop on this problem look at the book of :

Deville M., T.H.Le, Y. Morchoisne: Numerical simulation of 3D incompressible unsteady flow Notes on Numerical Fluide Mechanics Vo l36, Vieweg 1992

there you get experimental data as well as reference simulations

Re: 3D driven cavity reference
Look for papers by Prasad and Koseff (stanford university)

Prasad's Phd. is on driven cavity problem.

Yan Zang'S Phd. (again from Stanford) contains a chapter on the simulation of the 3-D driven cavity

paper by Koseff, J.R. et al (1983) in proceedings of 3rd international conference on numerical methods in laminar and turbulent flows pp 564-581
