Unformatted text preview: ILBLI window to make the appropriate choices for the items under: Fluid Properties, 2) Reference Properties, 3) Surface Characteristics and 4) Calculation Parameters . In particular, you must carefully choose x and y and N and M. Choose x (by choosing N) as approximately the initial boundary layer thickness. Choose y by putting about 20 points across the initial boundary layer thickness. Choose M such that you have a high enough computational region by the end of the calculation. You have a good estimate of the final (either at the TE or separation point if separation is predicted)value of the boundary layer thickness from your earlier WALZ calculation for this problem. Leave the last item as the Default value. That controls laminar to turbulent transition, and we will do this assignment as a purely laminar flow. Compare your results to those from the WALZ method....
