Model Data

Type: fluid dynamics

Physics Modes: navier stokes equations

Keywords: channel flow turbulence openfoam

Simulation of stationary and incompressible turbulent flow between two parallel flat plates at Reynolds number 42800. A fully developed turbulent velocity profile is formed at the outflow boundary which can be compared to experimental results (Laufer, J. 1950).

This example uses both the built-in algebraic mixing length turbulence model, as well as shows how to implement custom user-defined modeling expressions.

This model is available as an automated tutorial by selecting Model Examples and Tutorials… > Fluid Dynamics > Turbulent Channel Flow from the File menu. Or alternatively, follow the step-by-step instructions below.
