Model Data

Type: fluid dynamics

Physics Modes: navier stokes equations

Keywords: validation

Stationary and incompressible laminar Poiseuille flow in a two- dimensional rectangular channel. With a constant inflow profile u(0,y) = Umax and fixed no-slip walls, a fully developed laminar parabolic profile, u(y,L) = Umax4/h2y(h-y) is expected to develop at the outflow.
