Flow around the `GLW` characters (Leonid W. Granatstein) at medium Reynolds number

Computational details
Short description and remarks

Short description and remarks

Flow around 'GLW' characters in a circle with (outer) fixed rotational speed at high Reynolds number. This simulation has been part of the Software-Praktikum WS98/99 at Heidelberg.


  • Distribution of temperature/concentration via Boussinesq model

    Visualization via temperature distribution, starting from the (interior) heated shape of the characters, first shaded with isolines ( 2.8 MB), second shaded only ( 2.1 MB) and third grey-shaded ( 2.1 MB).

  • Pressure

    Visualization via pressure plots, shaded with isolines (2.2 MB).

  • Streamfunction

    Visualization via streamline plots, shaded with isolines (2.1 MB).

  • Velocity

    Visualization via (norm of) velocity plots, shaded with isolines (2.4 MB).
