Blasius Flat-Plate Flow Benchmark
1 Benchmarking icoHeatFoam against Blasius Similarity Solution
This is wiki page that will describe the case to benchmark the modified icoFoam described elsewhere: How to Add Temperature to IcoFoam
2 Blasius Similarity Solution
This section will describe the theoretical basis of the solution.
3 Mesh Construction and Physical Properties
How to use blockMesh to create a case file for testing and what values to use for the case.
4 Boundary and Initial Conditions
How to set the boundary conditions for this case.
5 Running the Case and post-processing
- Run the case
- Create a sampleDict file to use with it.
- Use gnuplot to compare OpenFOAM to analytical solution
6 Discussion of the results
- not optimal mesh/setup because of flow acceleration
- good agreement with analytical solution
