Q3: Increase the inlet speed used in the previous question so that the Reynolds number becomes 5000, solve the problem again and provide new results. Before solving the problem initialize it,i.e. do not continue over the previous solution. Is there any unexpected behavior in this solution?If there is any, what is the cause of it? Provide the residual plot and discuss its behavior.


[10 pts.]Using Taylor's series, derive the first-order, forward-difference expression for dul dy.


Q2: Grid convergence is required for all CFD analysis. When grid size is reduced gradually, certain critical parameter gradually reaches convergence. In the present study, the drag coefficient can betaken as the critical parameter. Reduce the mesh size and solve the problem again, until grid convergence is achieved. Before solving the problem initialize it, i.e. do not continue over the previous solution.
