I am a new user to SU2 and I would like to use SU2 to examine flow of air through a venturi. Therefore I am needing to use the RANS solver + compressible + viscous capabilities of SU2.

I would like to run an axisymmetric calculation to save computational time.

From what I can see I must add the lines to the cfg file:


Is there anything else I should be aware of?
Are there any good example cfg cases of axisymmetric viscous flow using SU2?

Thank you for your time

Hi Luke,

Sorry for the delay in the response. To use the axisymmetric source terms, you only need to specify AXISYMMETRIC = YES. However, the axisymmetric source terms are not formulated for RANS/viscous applications (it may converge, but will be incorrect). I am currently working to implement this.
