[Example 2] Flow in a 360 degree circle channel¶
Create Computational Grid¶
From the main menu, select [Grid], [Select Algorithm to Create Grid] ( Figure 33 ) Then the [Select Grid Creating Algorithm] window, Figure 34 appears. Select [2d arc generator] and click [OK]
Set values as shown in Figure 35 , and click [OK]. Click [Yes] when you asked “Do you want to map data?” as Figure 36 . Then the computational grid appears.
Bed configuration can be confirmed by putting checking marks at, [Grid], [Node attributes] and [Elevation (m)]. ( Figure 37 )
From the menu bar, select [Calculation Condition], [Settins] and [Calculation Condition] window, Figure 38 appears.
In Figure 38 , select [Discharge and downstream water surface elevation] and click [Edit].
Input dischege hydrograph as shown in Figure 39 and click [OK].
Select [Time and bed erosion parameters] and set values as Figure 40 .
Set [Boundary Condition] as Figure 41
Set [3D Velocity Profile] as Figure 42, and click [Save and Close]
By selectng [Simulation] and [Run], a window as Figure 43 appears, and the simulations starts.
When the simulation finish, Figure 44 appears. Then click [OK].
Display Computational Results¶
After the companion finished, form the main menu, by selecting [Calculation Results] and [Open new 2D Post-Processing Window], a new Window appears as Figure 45 .
In the object browser, put the check marks in “Scalar (node)” and “Depth[m]”, right-click and select “Properties”. The “Scalar Setting” window Figure 46 appears.
Set the values as shown in Figure 46, and click [OK], then Figure 47 appears.
In the object browser, put the check marks in “Arrow” and “Velocity”, right-click and select “Properties”. The “Arrow Setting” window Figure 48 appears. Set the values as Figure 48, and click [OK].
Figure 49 shows the depth-averaged velocity vectors.
In Figure 49, you can select “Surface Velocity” and “Bottom Velocity” by chekking each box in “Arrow” group.
Uncheck the box by “Arrow” in the Object Browser and check a box by “Streamline”. By checking “Velocity”, the streamlines following the depth averaged flow velocity” Figure 52 will be displayed. By checking “Surface Velocity”, the streamline following the surface velocity” Figure 53 will be displayed. By checking “Bottom Velocity”, the streamline following the bottom velocity ne: numref:02_kekka_11 will be displayed.
The effect of the secondary flow is clearly shown.
