# An incompressible CFD code is used to simulate the flow of water through a two-dimensional rectangular channel

## Question:

An incompressible CFD code is used to simulate the flow of water through a two-dimensional rectangular channel in which there is a circular cylinder (Fig. P15–18). A time-averaged turbulent flow solution is generated using a turbulence model. Top–bottom symmetry about the cylinder is assumed. Flow enters from the left and exits to the right as shown. Inlet velocity V is known, and outlet pressure P_{out} is also known. Generate the blocking for a structured grid using four-sided blocks, and sketch a coarse grid using four-sided cells, being sure to cluster cells near walls. Also be careful to avoid highly skewed cells. Label the boundary conditions that should be applied to every edge of every block of your computational domain.
