Merger of two perpendicular pipe flows at different inflow speeds

Short description and remarks

Short description and remarks

Merger of two perpendicular pipe flows. The left flow has speed 1 and the lower one varies from 1 (first column) over 5 (second column) up to 20 (third column). If both merge, they produce quite complex flow patterns. The corresponding coarse mesh 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 tracing of concentration, starting from the left and lower inlet (first and second (as zoom), each about 2 - 2.5 MB).

  • Pressure

    Visualization via pressure plots, shaded (each about 2 MB) and via isolines (as zoom, about 5 and 10 MB).

  • Streamfunction

    Visualization via streamline plots, shaded (each about 2 MB) and via isolines (as zoom, about 7 and 10 MB).

  • Velocity

    Visualization via vector plots (each about 10-15 MB). The zoomed area is visualized in the original position of the grid points.
