Zero Pressure Gradient 2D Flat Plate

Application ID: 110931

This model is a verification case to attest the behavior of turbulence models and wall functions in the boundary layer of a turbulent flow. The velocity and the temperature are compared to the theoretical curves in a wall-resolved and a wall-modeled approach using the Algebraic y+ turbulence model. Finally, the performance of the thermal wall functions are established when conduction is predominant and then when viscous dissipation is predominant.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
