NUMERICAL FLUID DYNAMICS 414/814 (2010

)

Pra ti al #3
Obje tive and Out omes

The aim of this pra ti al is to enable students to set up and exe ute a simple three-dimensional numeri al
ow analysis. For this purpose the problem of developing laminar ow in an ellipti du t must be solved
numeri ally. The numeri al solution must be ompared with the analyti al solution for fully developed ow,
whi h is presented in the Appendix.
Students who have ompleted this turorial will be able to 

Create unstru tured omputational meshes, using the
omputational domain with symmetry boundaries.  

Exe ute the numeri al solution, using the three-dimensional version of the FLUENT solver.

Workben h prepro essor, for a three-dimensional

Quantify entran e e e ts for a developing du t ow by omparing it with the orresponding analyti al
solution for fully developed ow.

Geometry and Fluid

A ross-se tion through an ellipti al tube is shown s hemati ally in Figure 1. A highly vis ous oil is pumped
through the tube in the positive x-dire tion, and the ow is assumed to be fully developed.
You must determine your own set of modelling parameter values using your student number, whi h onsists of
8 digits in the format d8 d7 d6 d5 d4 d3 d2 d1 , together with the formulas given in Table 1. Che k that your values
are within the given ranges!.
