Flow around `CFD' at different Reynolds numbers

Short description and remarks

Short description and remarks

Flow around `CFD' characters in a circle with fixed rotational speed at different Reynolds numbers. The flow tends to some steady behaviour (low Re case), while it seems to be fully nonsteady for the higher Reynolds number cases. The corresponding coarse mesh for all calculations is plotted in the following diagram. For a detailed description of the performed flow configurations look at the corresponding pages in the `Virtual Album'.


  • Distribution of temperature/concentration via Boussinesq model

    Visualization via distribution of temperature in the flow field, starting from the heated characters. We show the results for the low (first column), medium (second) and the high Reynolds number case (third column).

  • Pressure

    Visualization via shaded pressure plots.

  • Streamfunction

    Visualization via shaded streamline plots.

  • Velocity

    Visualization via vector plots.
