Here are some suggestions for what a report using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) should include:
A. Describe the problem in prose.
B. This is a checklist of items to be written down:
- Equations solved, and values of any parameters in the equations;
- Geometry, including dimensions;
- Boundary conditions on all boundaries, including any parameter values;
- Mesh information, at first the number of elements and degrees of freedom, and the final report should include at least one plot of the mesh.
C. Examine your results carefully.
- Plot lots of things;
- Look for oscillations (bad) and funny things;
- Do hand calculations of a simple case using standard formulas;
- Do at least some mesh refinement.
D. Present results in tables, contour and surface plots, and line plots.
E. What have you learned? Recommendations for improved solutions or new information.
