Description of the flow problem

stationary 2D "lid driven cavity" flow

squared domain of length 1

Dirichlet b.c.'s for the uvelocity at the top: u=1 for y=1

other b.c.'s: zero velocity elsewhere for u and v

initial condition at t=0: starting from rest

viscosity parameter: 1/nu=5,000


Description of the spatial discretization

coarse mesh (=level 1): 53 cells, 72 vertices, 301 d.o.f.`s

uniform refinements with exact boundary adaption

visualization on level 5: 13,568 cells, 13,857 vertices,
68,416 d.o.f.`s

computational mesh on level 7: 217,088 cells, 218,241 vertices,
1,087,744 d.o.f.`s

nonconforming nonparametric rotated bilinear fem's (meanvalue
version), UPW


Description of the temporal discretization

equidistant time stepping for computation with k=0.03333334

equidistant time stepping for visualization with k=0.1 (= 1
frame)

Total time T=50 corresponds to
1,500 time steps

fractional step theta scheme
