CFD PreLab 1 Questions (Pipe Flow) (to be turned in at the beginning of PreLab1) 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transfer Processes By Tao Xing and Fred Stern 1. What is the correct “CFD Process”? 2. What is the geometry? How many parameters do you need to create that geometry? 3. What is the definition of Reynolds number, assume u is the mean inlet velocity, is the pipe diameter, and v is the fluid viscosity. D 4.
