### Simple turbulence model appropriate for buoyancy-driven cavity like problem

Which turbulence model is suitable for resolving incompressible buoyancy-driven flow of a fluid within an cylindrical ampoule? I prefer turbulence model which is sufficiently simple so that fully ...

### Stochastic Galerkin projection approach for using generalized polynomial chaos expansion (GPCE) in solving PDE

I want to know if there is any way to define the test and trial function in the way that I want instead of using the default functions. So if I want define the polynomial and basis and coefficient, ...

### Poisson equation with pure Neumann boundary conditions (using FEM)

I am trying to derive the correct variational form for the Poisson equation with pure Neumann boundary conditions, and an additional contraint $\int_{\Omega} u \, {\rm d} x = 0$, as described in this ...

### Add orthogonality constraint to PDE over entire domain finite element

I have a nonlinear differential equation for $u:\mathbb{R}^2\rightarrow\mathbb{R}^3$ that I can express in the form: $\nabla (g(u)_{ij} \nabla(u)^j) = 0$ which is similar to the "Nonlinear Poisson" ...

### Time-dependent Schrodinger equation implementation in FEniCS

For our Bachelors thesis we're trying to solve the Schrodinger equation $i\partial_tu = -\nabla^2u+Vu$ in FEniCS. Given the domain $[-5, 5]^2$ with an initial value of $u_0(x, y)=e^{(-2(x^2+y^2))}$ ...

### Immersed boundary method in FEniCS?

I have looked at the FEniCS tutorials and documentation but I cannot find any mention to the possibility of implementing an immersed boundary method (IBM) for fluid dynamics. In particular, I want ...

### Setting up diffusion with integral B.C. in Fenics

I'm trying to model diffusion through a cylindrical domain $D = \{ (x,y,z) : x^2 + y^2 \leq 1, \;\; 0 \leq z \leq 1\}$. The is an initial concentration of the diffusant at the upper flat surface, ...

### computational tool for higher order Lagrangian interpolation for finite element

In finite element, I can calculate the Lagrangian interpolation shape functions for each degree of freedom in an element, from the the number of nodal degrees of freedom and the number of nodes ...

### How to add a Ricker Wavelet (Mexican Hat) to a 2D/ 3D fem mesh?

I have a 2D square mesh and a 3D beam shaped mesh and I want to propagate a seismic wave in them. I am trying to simulate them using Open source FEM codes (fenics). I have left the top surface to be ...

### FEniCS implementation of Maxwell equations for a dipole antenna

someone knows where I can find a FEniCS implementation of Maxwell equations for a dipole or other type of antenna? I mean a dipole antenna with an arbitrary geometry of every 'leg' in the dipole.
