### Anisotropic invariant expansion

I am trying to calculate the second and third invariants for a turbulent flow. I have the second order statistics (both transient and averaged). i.e $uu$, $vv$, $ww$, $uv$, $vw$ and $uw$. These are ...

### For a determined (known) Space charge density, what are the conditions to obtain the Electric potential/field distribution? (COMSOL, MATLAB)

Theoretic part From the theory, in Electrostatics inside a real dielectric material between real conductors, in a simple 1D plane geometry between points $P1$ and $P2$, according to the current ...

### Should the derivative of an array be calculated array by array or element by element in CFD codes?

I am making my own finite difference computational magnetohydrodynamic code in Fortran 90. Looking at other codes they appear to calculate for example their $x$-derivatives, bb of their variables, e.g....

### Loss of energy when using Roe Solver for solving onedimensional Shallow Water Equations

I have written a Roe solver with Harten entropy fix code in Matlab to numerically solve the one-dimensional Shallow Water Equations. : \begin{eqnarray} \dfrac{\partial h(x,t)}{\partial t} + \dfrac{\...

### Can we simulate rigid body motion using finite element analysis?

I was wondering if we could model rigid body motion of bodies using finite element models. Particularly I'm interested to know if we can model motion of objects with no constraints or with some ...

### Double Integrating acceleration data to obtain position: 2 Problems

I have a data sample from an accelerometer from my phone (pretty bad accelerometer though). I'm trying to double integrate it in order to obtain the position as a function of time. I'm using a program ...

### Strange solutions using Finite Element Analysis

I've implemented the Finite Element Method to model the heat transfer between two different materials where one material is surrounded by the other. When I run the model I'm getting some strange ...

### 1-D turbulent energy spectra in homogeneous direction (non-isotropic)

I am trying to compute the one-dimensional energy spectra for my channel-flow simulation. I have already written a post-processing script to achieve this; however, I need to validate my code before ...

### Parallelizing molecular simulation with full configuration energy

First, let just me stress that I'm not a an expert in computation chemistry, so now the problem: We have GCMC molecular simulation, in the Grand Canonical ensemble, using the standard metropolis ...
