Hi guys,
I am working on some compressible cases in SU2, and I am really confused on the reynolds length option, how to deal with it when setting up the cfg file? I noticed that in V&V, it is set to 0.523 for shock wave boundary layer interaction, which is the length of the model(the bottom wall), but in flat plate it is set as 1, which seems to be the height (or the length of the inlet). I am really struggling now , can someone help me with this definition? Will it change the cfd results and how to set it correctly? THANKS A LOT!!!
