Hi freinds.

I have written a simple program for 2D channel flow and apply uniform velocity U0=0.05 at inlet,fully developed at outlet :u(nx)=u(nx-1) according

to zou-He BC. bounce back for walls. Nx=235,Ny=35. I have choose a specified tau for simulation,So all parametres will be knownand there is not need to enter Reynolds no.

(with these parameters Re=U0*Ny/nu will be 6.9) but I have an strange behavior in velocity of centre line (U/U0) at the length

of channel(theorically it shoud be 1.5 in fully developed)

if i choose 0.6<tau<1 U/U0 decrease at the length.U(nx,ny/2)/U0<1.5

if i choose a tau :tau>1 U/U increase at the length.U(nx,ny/2)/U0>1.5

at aout tau~1 this will be 1.5

Have any one obsereved this dependency of u/U0 in tau??

Is thete an optimum tau in LBM simulation?(tau=1)

thanks.
