I have a system of PDEs in cylindrical coordinates that needs to be solved: 1. Continuity equation 2. Incompressible Navier stokes ( in r & z coordinates) 3. Heat transfer equation with both conduction and convection terms
Is it possible to solve these equations using PDE toolbox?
This is the link from the MATLAB website I referred to: http://www.mathworks.com/help/pde/ug/equations-you-can-solve.html
However, I do not think my equations would fit into this form.
Is discretization by the finite difference method a better way? Is application of the SIMPLE algorithm by Patankar necessary?
