2D Lid driven Cavity Flow



Simulation of the 2D lid driven Cavity Flow of a Newtonian Fluid (laminar flow) using FD.

File Information

Cavity flow is simulated using the pressure correction method on a staggered grid using explicit differencing for the hyperbolic terms (CD, MacCormack and Richtmyer method) while both explicit and implicit methods are considered for the diffusive (parabolic) terms. For the implicit steps, preconditioned matrices are used using LU decomposition. The Pressure Poisson equation is also solved implicitly. Neumann boundary conditions are used for pressure and Dirichlet conditions for the velocity field

What is the highest Re number, this code can cope with?

The code is meant to be pedagogical in nature and has been made in line with the 12-steps to Navier-Stokes practical module, for which I would like to credit Lorena Barba and her online course on CFD.
