Stokes Boundary Layer

In this tutorial we will have a look at the stokes problem, where we use the LinFlow-PDE to solve this problem. The bottom is excited with a velocity which creates a flow inside the fluid. Depending on the frequency the boundary layer changes.
Here a good illustration from wikipedia:
- Run the simulation
- Try to visualize the velocity field in paraview (How to visualize field results and see how the field oszilates for different frequencies (How to animate harmonic results)
- Try to visualize the velocity over the boundary layer thickness for the different frequency steps, using python.
Coupling to other fields
You can couple the linFlow-PDE to various fields. For example's look into our testsuite:
