Introduction

In this assignment you will use a commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software called Star-CCM+. Two different simulations will be done. The first involves flow over a flat plate and you will extract data from the CFD simulation to compare with the analytical/empirical formulations for laminar and turbulent boundary layers. In the second task you will simulate the flow over a cylinder and compare the simulated flow field with data from an experiment.
