Numerical analysis of some problems of stationary plane and axially symmetric laminar flow
Abstract
Certain problems of viscous fluid flow are solved by dividing the flow region into finite elements and applying the Galerkin method to each element. The method employed is an orthogonalization variant of the finite element method. The investigation is concerned with a numerical analysis of plane and axially symmetric stationary incompressible flows described by the set of NavierStokes equations and the continuity equation. A computer program is written and flow parameters are computed for channels of uniform and varying cross section.
