Computer Assignment 1

Numerical analysis of fully developed channel flow

Numerical analysis of fully developed channel flow

In this exercise, you will study a fully developed channel flow (flow between two parallel plates) numerically. You will start with a laminar case flow as that problem can be solved analytically and thus it is possible to make a comparison and get a feeling for the accuracy of the numerical method. In the second part of the assignment, you will analyze a turbulent flow numerically and compare your results to provided measured data. The numerical part will be done using Python.

  1. Read the instruction document (MTF053_CA1.pdf)

  2. Download the following file MTF053_CA1.ipynb (a Jupyter NoteBook that contains the Python code needed to do the assignment)

  3. Do the assignment:

    1. Start Jupyter Lab:
    2. Upload the Jupyter NoteBook
    3. Go through the assignment step by step. Write down answers to questions in the Jupyter NoteBook. Derivations made using pen and paper or tablet can be included as photos/images.
    4. When done with the assignment, download your modified Jupyter NoteBook from Jupyter Lab. To download the Jupyter NoteBook right click on the notebook file in the file tree on the left side of the Jupyter Lab user interface and click on download in the drop down menu.
