Flow over a hill at medium Reynolds number

Computational details
Short description and remarks

Short description and remarks

This simulation shows the flow through a channel in which a hill or bump is located. Due to the medium Reynolds number, the flow gets steady.

This simulation is one of the oldest in the 'Virtual Album', and it is a student version!


  • Distribution of temperature/concentration via Boussinesq model

    Visualization via temperature distribution from the heated walls (first, shaded, 0.6 MB and second, isolines in a zoomed region, 3.3 MB).

  • Pressure

    Visualization via pressure plots, shaded (first, 0.6 MB) and via isolines (second, 1.6 MB).

  • Streamfunction

    Visualization via streamline plots, shaded (first, 0.7 MB) and via isolines (second, as zoom, 0.5 MB).

  • Velocity

    Visualization via vector plots (vectors, 1.6 MB) in a zoomed region.
