Model Data

Type: fluid dynamics

Physics Modes: navier stokes equations

Keywords: validation

Stationary and laminar incompressible flow in a square cavity (Reynolds number, Re = 1000). The top of the cavity is prescribed a tangential velocity while the sides and bottom are defined as no-slip zero velocity walls.

This model is available as an automated tutorial by selecting Model Examples and Tutorials… > Fluid Dynamics > Flow in Driven Cavity from the File menu, and also as the MATLAB simulation m-script example ex_navierstokes2. Step-by-step tutorial instructions to set up and run this model are linked below.
