Dear all: I want to do a s
Dear all:
I want to do a simple test of driven cavity problem with the idea of "block-off" test. The block-off idea is to set one corner of cavity with extremly large viscosity. With this design, flowing pattern in this region should be stagnant idealy. But i don't know how to set this property from simple way, can anyone give me some comment ??

Best regards
