Viscous Layers for Flat Plate Mesh (to be used in OpenFOAM)

Posted by Akintunde Akinneye at July 24. 2021

Hello,

I recently made the switch to Salome and I am having issues creating the viscous 2D layer necessary to capture boundary layer effects for a fluid flow simualation.

I have a rectangular domain with the lower half face serving as a wall for a 2D simulation to benchmark Salome.

How do I create the viscous layers directly above the wall for 2D meshes?

I tried doing it the same way for 3d meshes but clearly I'm doing something wrong as the viscous layers do not form.

N.B. I've done something similar with a 'stepped' flat plate and i didn't have the issue but it was in 3D

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks!
