Two parallel plates extended to infinity are a distance of h = 4 cm apart. The fluid within the plates has a kinematic viscosity of ν = 0.000217 m2/s and density of 800 kg/m3. The upper plate is stationary and the lower one is suddenly set in motion with a constant velocity of U0 = 40 m/s. The governing equation is Navier-Stokes simplified as: ∂2u ∂u =ν 2 ∂t ∂y where y is the cross-stream direction and u(y, t) is the streamwise velocity component. Use a first-order forward-time and second-order central space (FTCS) scheme to discretize the PDE. The analytical solution for this PDE is given by: ! ∞ ∞ X X u(η) = U0 erf c(2nη1 + η) − erf c(2nη1 − η) n=0

√ √ where η = y/2 νt, η1 = h/2 νt and erf c(z) = function.

1. Derive the truncation error of the finite-difference equation. Is FTCS scheme consistent? 2. The stability condition for FTCS is given by: d = ν∆t/∆y 2 ≤ 0.5. Verify this condition numerically by examining the velocity profile for different ∆t and ∆y. 3. Decrease ∆y (adjust ∆t accordingly to satisfy the stability condition). At what ∆y value does the solution become independent of ∆y. This is called the grid independent solution. 4. Show that the accuracy of the solution improves on a finer mesh (as ∆y decreases). The error can be calculated as: Analytical − Numerical × 100 %error = Analytical 5. Plot the velocity profile for t = 0, 0.18, 1.08 sec and compare the numerical results with the analytical solution. 6. Continue the numerical solution in time untill it reaches steady-state. Compare this solution with the analytical solution as well as that obtained from the PDE directly 2 (i.e. by solving the ∂∂yu2 = 0 analytically).
