- This case is concerned with flow and heat transfer in a
symetrical converging-diverging duct filled with a
fluid with highly varying properties.
- The properties that depend heavily on the temperature
include the density, thermal conductivity, viscosity, heat
capacity and Prandtl number.
- PLANT is used to introduce the property correlations into the
calculation procedure.

- PLANT is a PHOENICS add-on which allows users to change
the coding within certain GROUND groups and sections using
PIL instructions in the Q1 file.
- PLANT can include GROUND coding for non-linear property
correlations, interphase transport features, initial fields,
non-linear source laws and output control calculations.
- PLANT is intended for use by those with a need to include
GROUND routines but who either lack the necessary FORTRAN
knowledge or who wish to same time by placing the necessary
commands in the Q1 file
- PLANT adds the required coding into GROUND and recompiles
the EARTH executable before starting the run.
- PLANT is included in PHOENICS 1.4 Shareware.
