Flow around a Sphere at Finite Reynolds Number by Galerkin Method
Nonlinear Navier–Stokes equations are solved by the Galerkin method to obtain the contour and streamline plots for the flow around the sphere.
The program solves nonlinear Navier–Stokes equations by using the Galerkin method for analytical expressions as proposed in . The method was first implemented in FORTRAN in .
