3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

WAKE solves the turbulent Navier  Stokes equations using a two equations model of turbulence (kinetic  energy and dissipation rate) and stream function, vorticity representation of the mean flow pattern.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Finite difference solution of flux equation in an orthogonal mesh specified by the user.
top ]
5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Model size is defined by array sizes set in FORTRAN routines.
top ]
6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Problem set up at present is of the order of 15 minutes CPU time.
top ]
7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

Much of input is specified by coding in various subroutines - a detailed knowledge of the function and operation of each subroutine is necessary before the user can confidently set up his/her own problem.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

WAKE is based on the code PISTEP II  written by Imperial College Staff.
