Use of Star CD for viscoplastic flows - 2 : Couette flows -

Authors : D. Anne-Archard (anne-archard@imft.fr)
Objective :
Numerical simulation of hydrodynamics when fluids are non newtonian ones with the industrial code Star CD.
Numerous industrial fluids are non newtonian. One can encountered them in domains as different as petroleum industry (production and derivatives: polymers), food industry, textile... and hydrodynamics can be strongly affected by non newtonian characteristics such as viscoplasticity.
The aim of this task is to simulate the Couette flow of a viscoplastic Bingham fluid with Star CD and then compare these results to analytical solution. Plane and cylindrical geometry will be examined.
