Flow Separation Around a Solitary Dike: Eddy Viscosity and Mesh Considerationsby D. R. Richards, US Army Engineer Waterways, Experiment Station, Vicksburg, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Hydraulic Engineering
Abstract: The hydronamic model RMA-2V has been verified on a variety of global circulation studies. These studies rarely involved separated flow patterns around sudden expansions or contractions. This paper presents results from numerical and physical studies of separated flow around a solitary dike. Particular emphasis is placed on eddy viscosity and mesh refinement issues as they pertain to numerical model accuracy.
