## Hagen-Poiseuille flow

Here, I am going to go over the solution to fully developed laminar pipe flow. This is a canonical problem and provides an exact solution to the Navier-Stokes equations. It … Continue Reading Hagen-Poiseuille flow

In this post I am going to go through the solution to the moving wall Couette flow problem. An illustration of the problem is given below: In this problem, the fluid … Continue Reading Couette Flow (Moving Wall)

Deriving the speed of sound is a main component of any undergraduate textbook in gas dynamics and is very important to understanding more complicated concepts! Here, I will give an honest … Continue Reading Definition of the Speed of Sound

An excellent test case, and case to familiarize yourself with some of the turbulence models available in OpenFOAM is a 2D flat plate with zero pressure gradient. I will solve … Continue Reading Turbulent Zero Pressure Gradient Flat Plate – simpleFOAM, komegaSST

I have already done a post on supersonic flow over 23 degree wedge. In that post, we were intentionally creating a situation where the shock wave would be detached from the … Continue Reading Alternate Set-up: Oblique Shock in rhoCentralFOAM

In this post I go over the numerical solution to the compressible boundary layer equations. This is very useful when a quick estimate of shear stress, wall heat flux, or … Continue Reading Numerical Solution of the Compressible Laminar Boundary Layer Equations
