Strange fluids such as viscoplastics are widespread in industry and require a special treatment as their physical behaviour influences the flow. It is therefore interesting to see if we can easily solve this kind of problem.
The aim of that MCIP session was to use an industrial CFD code (StarCD) with non-Newtonian fluid.
To do this, we study a Couette flow where, in a first time, the viscosity
is the one of a Newtonian fluid, before using a non-Newtonian fluid. It
allows us, first, to familiarize us with StarCD, and in a second time to
compare the behaviours of a viscoplastic with a Newtonian fluid.
