Introduction




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. The numerical part will be done using Python.
