## Main Question or Discussion Point

Okay then Here is another one of my ridiculous posts. Yay!

Let's say I want to write my own CFD code in MATLAB. Is does not need to be robust. I want it to be as simple as possible.

It should be able to solve a model that consists of only one, single grid cell.

I know that I will be solving seven equations simultaneously.

I know I need to give boundary conditions. But how many do I need? I have a six-sided grid cell. I am fairly sure that I need more than 1 BC, but less than 6.

I know that I have left out a fair amount of necessary info. I also know that this might be a lot more difficult than I am making it out to be. But I think I could learn a lot even by failing at it.

So what else do I need here? What exactly are the equations?

I know we have x,y,x momentum, Navier-Stokes (I think), some form of turbulence equation (probably k-Epsilon), continuity and Energy. Correct?

What's next?

Anyone who might be interested in joining me in this project, feel free! no experience required--I don't have much!
