Case Description

  • The aim of this flat plate test case is to understand the turbulent simulation and to test many turbulence settings.


  • This test case is suitable to compare Wall treatment – Low Re modeling (resolved mesh) vs. Wall Functions


  • This test case is suitable to compare compressible and incompressible fluid flows.


  • A flat plate test case is a typical test case for testing turbulence models.


  • This is perhaps the simplest case possible.


  • A free-stream flows around the flat plate.


  • The boundary layer properties are tested.


  • The test case is described in NASA pages http://turbmodels.larc.nasa.gov/flatplate_val.html


  • The test case is already preset.
