2D Circular cylinder - Vortex shedding

Vortex shedding 2D

In this tutorial, we setup the classical case of the flow around a 2D circular cylinder at various Reynolds number. We use this case to understand how to setup different solvers and physics (laminar, turbulent, compressible). You will learn,

  • Setting incompressible and compressible cases
  • Running laminar and turbulent cases
  • Interpreting the results
  • Mapping solutions from a coarse mesh to a fine mesh
  • Field initialization to speedup the computation
  • Converting a mesh to OpenFOAM format
  • Sampling, plotting, and scripting
  • Field manipulations
  • Monitoring the solution
  • Running parametrical studies
  • Computing and monitoring forces and other quantities of interest
