Sutherland’s equation is a useful model for the temperature dependence of the viscosity of gases. I give a few details about it in this post: https://curiosityfluids.com/2019/02/15/sutherlands-law/ The law given by: … Continue Reading Solving for your own Sutherland Coefficients using Python

Establishing grid convergence is a necessity in any numerical study. It is essential to verify that the equations are being solved correctly and that the solution is insensitive to the grid … Continue Reading Establishing Grid Convergence

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

The classic lid-driven cavity flow problem is solved using the vorticity streamfunction formulation and compared to a solution using OpenFOAM.
