Finite volume simulation of viscoelastic laminar flow in a lid-driven cavity

2009-12-01
A finite volume technique is presented for the numerical solution of steady laminar flow of Oldroyd-B fluid in a lid-driven square cavity over a wide range of Reynolds and Weissenberg numbers. Second order central difference (CD) scheme is used for the convection part of the momentum equation while first order upwind approximation is employed to handle viscoelastic stresses. A non-uniform collocated grid system is used. Momentum interpolation method (MIM) is used to evaluate face velocity. Coupled mass and momentum conservation equations are solved through iterative SIMPLE (serni-implicit method for pressure-linked equation) algorithm. Detailed investigation of the flow field is carried out in terms of velocity and stress fields. Differences between the behavior of Newtonian and viscoelastic fluids, such as the normal stress effects and secondary eddy formations, are highlighted.

The developing steady flow of Oldroyd-B and Phan-Thien-Tanner (PTT) fluids through a two-dimensional rectangular channel is investigated computationally by means of a finite volume technique incorporating uniform collocated grids. A second-order central difference scheme is employed to handle convective terms in the momentum equation, while viscoelastic stresses are approximated by a third-order accurate quadratic upstream interpolation for convective kinematics (QUICK) scheme.

In this work, computer simulation results of steady incompressible flow in a 2-D square lid-driven cavity up to Reynolds number (Re) 65000 are presented and compared with those of earlier studies. The governing flow equations are solved by using the finite volume approach. Quadratic upstream interpolation for convective kinematics (QUICK) is used for the approximation of the convective terms in the flow equations. In the implementation of QUICK, the deferred correction technique is adopted. A non-uniform st...

Gunaydinoglu, Erkan; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-01-01)
In this study, we propose a method to reconstruct pressure fields from planar particle image velocimetry measurements for laminar flows by employing semi-implicit method for pressure-linked equations algorithm to solve governing equations where measured velocities are inherently used as boundary conditions. The method starts with interpolating the measured velocity field on a staggered computational grid. The continuity equation, in the form of pressure equation for incompressible flows, is solved with this...
