Perpendicular pipe flow into a channel at high Reynolds number

Computational details
Short description and remarks

Short description and remarks

The perpendicular lower pipe flow into the channel at high Reynolds number. The inflow through the lower pipe has speed 1. The structure of the flow is highly time-dependent. For small times (during the startup) the resulting flow is symmetric. However, it becomes nonsymmetric with time. This simulation has to be compared with the similar ones in the Album, including lower Reynolds number.


  • Distribution of temperature/concentration via Boussinesq model

    Visualization via tracing of concentration, starting from the lower inlet (first and second, different color maps, 1.7 MB and 2.7 MB, third as a zoom, 1.7 MB).

  • Pressure

    Visualization via pressure plots, shaded (first, 1.1 MB) and via isolines (second and third, as zoom, 5.7 MB and 7.8 MB).

  • Streamfunction

    Visualization via streamline plots, shaded (first, 1.3 MB) and via isolines (second and third, as zoom, 2.8 MB and 8.9 MB).

  • Velocity

    Visualization via vector plots (vectors, 8.6 MB) in a zoomed area.
