Viscous Flow Questions & Answers  
This means the way you set the coefficients is wrong and leads to a system of equations that can not be solved (i.e., the matrix can not be inverted). Check your coefficients and rhs and make sure they lead to reasonable equations for all nodes.

Wow! thank you! professor! I got some result!! However there still is another error message... Is it okay???
If this error appears, it means the way you impose the coefficients violates the memory space. I.e., you are reading or writing outside of the bounds for *a, *b, *c or *rhs. Check your coefficients again, there is a bug there somewhere..

Professor, today we derived $\overline{\Phi}_{x'=-L_t}$ using Taylor series but, you took partial derivate of $\overline{\Phi}$ with $x$. In my opinion, we have to take derivative of $\overline{\Phi}$ with $x'$ because we had considered $\overline{\Phi}$ over $X'-Y'$ coordinate. Is it okay to take partial derviative with x then x'?
You are absolutely right. It would have been more clear to take the partial derivative with respect to $x^\prime$. But the partial derivative with respect to $x$ is not affected by a change in reference frame, so this wouldn't change the end result.

Professor, I have a question about assignment8 question3. How can I find $\tau_w $ without information about the initial conditions?
The *mut contains $\mu_{\rm t}$ from the previous iteration (or from the initial condition if at the first iteration). Of course, for this to work, you need to update the coefficients and *mut within the function find_coeff_and_rhs().

Professor,I have questions about turbulent viscosity.
1. When find wall shear stress, we need $\mu_{t,j=1.5}$, and it was $$\mu_{t,j=1.5} = \frac { \mu_{t,j=1} + \mu_{t,j=2}}{2}$$ but $\mu_{t} = {\rm something\;long\;term}\; y^{2}$,then how can be $\mu_{t,j+\frac{1}{2}} = \frac { \mu_{t,j+1} + \mu_{t,j}}{2}$
2. how discretize $|\frac{∂u}{∂y}|_j$?
It doesn't matter if $\mu_t$ is a long expression or not. Find it at the nodes first, and then calculate at the interfaces by taking the average of the nearby nodes. A simple approximation to $\partial u / \partial y$ is $(u_{j+1}-u_{j-1})/(2\Delta y)$. We'll see this tomorrow.

Professor, this is my code for turbulent flow. I can have symmetric shape answer for this code, but ub is five times bigger than answer. And I don't know what is wrong.
