Hello Foamers,

does anybody know something about how to investigate the backward facing step as in the papers? I mean how to plot "x/H" over "U/U0" and how to plot "U/U0" over "y/H"? H is the step height in a x-y-frame with mean velocity U0 and velocity U.

Cheers in advance

Hello Claus,
By any chance have you figured out the answer for your question ?
I am stuck with exactly the same problem
