2 Overview Inlet and Outlet Boundaries Velocity Outline Profiles Turbulence Parameters Pressure Boundaries and others... Wall, Symmetry, Periodic and Axis Boundaries Internal Cell Zones Fluid Porous Media Moving Cell Zones Solid Internal Face Boundaries C2
3 Fluent Software Training Overview u Boundary Conditions: l l u orifice_plate and orifice_plateshadow outlet e.g., mass, momentum, and energy Fluid/Solid regions represented by cell zones. l u Boundaries direct motion of flow. Boundary Conditions are a required component of mathematical model. Specify fluxes into computational domain. l u orifice (interior) Material and Source terms are assigned to cell zones. Boundaries and internal surfaces are represented by face zones. l Boundary data are assigned to face zones. C3 wall inlet fluid Example: Face and Cell zones associated with Pipe Flow through orifice plate
4 Setting Boundary Conditions Zones and zone types are initially defined in preprocessor. To change zone type for a particular zone: Define Boundary Conditions... Choose the zone in Zone list. Can also select boundary zone using right mouse button in Display Grid window. Select new zone type in Type list. To set boundary conditions for particular zone: Choose the zone in Zone list. Click Set... button Boundary condition data can be copied from one zone to another. Boundary condition data can be stored and retrieved from file. file writebc file readbc C4
5 Flow Inlets and Outlets Wide range of boundary conditions types permit flow to enter and exit solution domain: General Pressure inlet Pressure outlet Incompressible Velocity inlet Outflow Boundary data required depends on physical models selected. General guidelines: Select boundary location and shape such that flow either goes in or out. Not necessary, but will typically observe better convergence. Should not observe large gradients in direction normal to boundary. Indicates incorrect setup. Minimize grid skewness near boundary. Compressible flows Special Mass flow inlet Pressure farfield Inlet vent, outlet vent, intake fan, exhaust fan C5
6 Velocity Inlets Defines velocity vector and scalar properties of flow at inlet boundaries. Useful when velocity profile is known at inlet. uniform profile is default Intended for incompressible flows. Total (stagnation) properties of flow are not fixed. Stagnation properties vary to accommodate prescribed velocity distribution. Using in compressible flows can lead to nonphysical results. Avoid placing velocity inlet too close to a solid obstruction. Can force the solution to be nonphysical, e.g., imposes velocity field, etc., at boundary that may not be intended. C6
7 Using Profiles Alternative to UDF s for defining boundary profiles. Profiles can define spatial and time varying boundary conditions. Profiles can be generated by: Writing a profile from another CFD simulation Creating an appropriately formatted text file with location information and boundary condition data. Profiles can be manipulated through: Define Profiles Profiles data applied to boundary through hooks. C7
8 Determining Turbulence Parameters When turbulent flow enters domain at inlet, outlet, or at a farfield boundary, FLUENT 5 requires boundary values for: Turbulent kinetic energy k Turbulence dissipation rate ε Four methods available for specifying turbulence parameters: Set k and ε explicitly Set turbulence intensity and turbulence length scale Set turbulence intensity and turbulent viscosity ratio Set turbulence intensity and hydraulic diameter Intensity and length scale depend on conditions upstream, e.g.: Exhaust of a turbine Intensity = 20 % Length scale = 110 % of blade span Downstream of perforated plate or screen Intensity = 10 % Length scale = screen/hole size Fullydeveloped flow in a duct or pipe Intensity = 5 % Length scale = hydraulic diameter C8
9 Pressure Boundary Conditions Pressure boundary conditions require gauge pressure inputs: pressure level p = p + absolute gauge p operating gauge pressure Operating pressure input is set under: Define Operating Conditions Useful when: flow rate and/or velocity is not known (e.g., buoyancydriven flows). free boundary in an external or unconfined flow needs to be defined. absolute pressure operating pressure operating pressure vacuum C9
10 Defines total pressure, temperature, and other scalar quantities at flow inlets. p p total = p static 1 v 2 k 1 (1 + M 2 Supersonic/Initial Gauge Pressure: Pressure Inlet Boundary (1) p 2 total = static + ρ incompressible flows Defines static pressure at boundary for locally supersonic flows. Used, if necessary, to initialize flow field for incompressible flows. Total temperature: 2 k /( k 1) ) compressible flows must be defined for compressible flows. is used, if necessary, to set static temperature for incompressible flows. C10
11 Pressure Inlet Boundary (2) Flow Direction must be defined. Can get nonphysical results if you don t specify a reasonable direction. Suitable for compressible and incompressible flows. Pressure inlet boundary is treated as lossfree transition from stagnation to inlet conditions. Mass flux through boundary varies depending on interior solution and specified flow direction. Outflow can occur at pressure inlet boundaries. Flow direction taken from interior solution. Exhaust static pressure is defined by value specified for gauge total pressure wherever outflow occurs. C11
12 Pressure Outlet Boundary (1) Defines static (gauge) pressure at the outlet boundary. Interpreted as static pressure of environment into which flow exhausts. Radial equilibrium pressure distribution option available. Backflow can occur at pressure outlet boundaries: during solution process or as part of solution. Backflow is assumed to be normal to the boundary. Convergence difficulties minimized by realistic values for backflow quantities. Value specified for static pressure used as total pressure wherever backflow occurs. C12
13 Pressure Outlet Boundary (2) For incompressible flows: The static pressure input defines the boundary pressure All other flow quantities are extrapolated from the interior. For compressible flows: The static pressure input is ignored if locally supersonic. All flow quantities are extrapolated from interior. Pressure Outlet must be used when problem is set up with Pressure Inlet. C13
14 Outflow Boundary Flow exiting domain at Outflow boundary has zero normal gradients for all flow variables except pressure. FLUENT extrapolates required information from interior. Useful when: Details of flow velocity and pressure not known prior to solution of flow problem. Appropriate where exit flow is close to fully developed condition. Note: Use of Pressure Outlet (instead of Outflow) often results in better rate of convergence when backflow occurs during iteration. C14
15 Restrictions on Outflow Boundaries Outflow Boundaries cannot be used: with compressible flows. with the Pressure Inlet boundary condition (use Velocity Inlet instead): Combination does not uniquely set a pressure gradient over the whole domain. in unsteady flows with variable density. Do not use outflow boundaries where: Flow enters domain Gradients in flow direction are significant Conditions downstream of exit plane impact flow in domain outflow condition illposed outflow condition not obeyed outflow condition obeyed outflow condition closely obeyed C15
16 Using Outflow boundary condition: Modeling Multiple Exits Mass flow divided equally among all outflow boundaries by default. Flow Rate Weighting (FRW) set to 1 by default. For uneven flow distribution: specify Flow Rate Weighting for each outflow boundary: m i =FRW i /ΣFRW i. static pressure varies among exits to accommodate flow distribution. Can also use Pressure Outlet boundaries to define exits. velocityinlet (v,t 0 ) or pressureinlet (p 0,T 0 ) C16 velocity inlet pressureoutlet (p s ) 1 pressureoutlet (p s ) 2 FRW 1 FRW 2
17 Other Inlet/Outlet Boundary Conditions Mass Flow Inlet Used in compressible flows to prescribe mass flow rate at inlet. Not required for incompressible flows. Pressure Far Field Available when density is calculated from the ideal gas law. Used to model freestream compressible flow at infinity, with freestream Mach number and static conditions specified. Exhaust Fan/Outlet Vent Model external exhaust fan/outlet vent with specified pressure jump/loss coefficient and ambient (discharge) pressure and temperature. Inlet Vent/Intake Fan Model inlet vent/external intake fan with specified loss coefficient/ pressure jump, flow direction, and ambient (inlet) pressure and temperature. C17
18 Wall Boundaries Used to bound fluid and solid regions. In viscous flows, noslip condition enforced at walls: Tangential fluid velocity equal to wall velocity. Normal velocity component = 0 Thermal boundary conditions: several types available. Wall material and thickness can be defined for 1D or inplane thin plate heat transfer calculations. Wall roughness can be defined for turbulent flows. Wall shear stress and heat transfer based on local flow field. Translational or rotational velocity can be assigned to wall. Shear stress can also be specified. C18
19 Symmetry Boundaries Used to reduce computational effort in problem. Flow field and geometry must be symmetric: Zero normal velocity at symmetry plane Zero normal gradients of all variables at symmetry plane No inputs required. Must take care to correctly define symmetry boundary locations. Also used to model slip walls in viscous flow symmetry planes C19
20 Periodic Boundaries Used when physical geometry of interest and expected pattern of flow/thermal solution have periodically repeating nature. Reduces computational effort in problem. Two types available in FLUENT 5. p = 0 across periodic planes. Rotationally or translationally periodic. Rotationally periodic boundaries require axis of rotation be defined in fluid zone. p is finite across periodic planes. Translationally periodic only. Models fully developed conditions. Specify either mean p per period or net mass flow rate. By default, periodic boundaries defined in Gambit are assumed to be translational in FLUENT 5. C20
21 Periodic Boundaries: Examples Dp = 0: Dp > 0: 4 tangential inlets computational domain Rotationally periodic boundaries flow direction Streamlines in a 2D tube heat exchanger Translationally periodic boundaries C21
22 Axis Boundaries Used: At centerline (y=0) of an axisymmetric grid Where multiple grid lines meet at a point in a 3D Otype grid Specify: No inputs required AXIS boundary C22
23 Fluid zone = group of cells for which all active equations are solved. Fluid material input required. Single species, phase. Optional inputs allow setting of source terms: mass, momentum, energy, etc. Cell Zones: Fluid Define fluid zone as laminar flow region if modeling transitional flow. Can define zone as porous media. Define axis of rotation for rotationally periodic flows. Can define motion for fluid zone. C23
24 Porous Media Conditions Porous zone modeled as special type of fluid zone. Enable Porous Zone option in Fluid panel. Pressure loss in flow determined via user inputs of resistance coefficients to lumped parameter model. Used to model flow through porous media and other distributed resistances, e.g., Packed beds Filter papers Perforated plates Flow distributors Tube banks C24
25 Moving Zones Single Zone Problems: Rotating Reference Frame Model define zone as Moving Reference Frame limited applicability Multiple Zone Problems: Each zone defined as moving reference frame: Multiple Reference Frame Model least accurate, least demanding on CPU Mixing Plane Model field data are averaged at the outlet of one zone and used as inlet boundary data to adjacent zone. Each zone defined as Moving Mesh: Sliding Mesh Model must also define interface. Mesh positions are calculated; timeaccurate simulations relative motion must be tangential (no normal translation) C25
26 Cell Zones: Solid Solid zone = group of cells for which only heat conduction problem solved. No flow equations solved Material being treated as solid may actually be fluid, but it is assumed that no convection takes place. Only required input is material type So appropriate material properties used. Optional inputs allow you to set volumetric heat generation rate (heat source). Need to specify rotation axis if rotationally periodic boundaries adjacent to solid zone. Can define motion for solid zone C26
27 Internal Face Boundaries Defined on cell faces Do not have finite thickness Provide means of introducing step change in flow properties. Used to implement physical models representing: Fans Radiators Porous jump Preferable over porous media exhibits better convergence behavior. Interior wall C27
28 Summary Zones are used to assign boundary conditions. Wide range of boundary conditions permit flow to enter and exit solution domain. Wall boundary conditions used to bound fluid and solid regions. Repeating boundaries used to reduce computational effort. Internal cell zones used to specify fluid, solid, and porous regions. Internal face boundaries provide way to introduce step change in flow properties. C28
