    i have to do a program in fortran to resolve this problem.

    it´s a problrm of convective heat transfer, bi-dimensional with generation of heat on a uniform meshgrid. if you know, it´s a problem from the book "Numerical Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow_Suhas V. Patankar_1980" - exercice 5.1.

    the problem as to be solve using the CDS esquem and the Upwind esquem

    than i have to make the grid refinement and compare the results of the esquem i use...

    You're going to need to show us more. What have you tried, and what kind of problems are you having? This isn't an all-you-can-eat code buffet, you've got to prepare your own meals.

    Hi Giber,

    I read your code and I notice that you were missing the iterative loop in the cycle. Im doing the same problem and I also have problems with my code. Were you able to finish that one? Im driving crazy with mine!
