Use of STAR CD for viscoplastic flow

Conclusion
 




        This study has allowed us to work on STAR CD. At first, we wanted to create a mesh under Gambit and to import it on STAR CD. But it didn't work, because STAR CD only deals with 3 dimensionnal geometry. Therefore, we did create the mesh under STAR CD, which is a good thing, because it allowed us to masterise this code.

        After having creating this mesh, we did use the post-processing. We studied the cases of an air flow and a water flow. And finally, we did modify the code to introduce the behavior's law of the viscoplastic fluid. That was an important thing, because we can extend it (the code modification) to other fluid's properties. And this is can be usefull for our professionnal life, because most of code don't treat particular cases, such as the one we studied.
