Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Different effective boundary conditions or wall laws for unsteady incompressible Navier-Stokes equations over rough domains are derived in the laminar setting. First and second order unsteady wall laws are proposed using two scale asymptotic expansion techniques. The roughness elements are supposed to be periodic and the influence of the rough boundary is incorporated through constitutive constants. These constants are obtained by solving steady Stokes problems and so they are calculated only once. Numerical tests are presented to validate and compare the proposed boundary conditions.
