2 Outline Overview. Inlet and outlet boundaries. Velocity. Pressure boundaries and others. Wall, symmetry, periodic and axis boundaries. Internal cell zones. Fluid, porous media, moving cell zones. Solid. Internal face boundaries. Material properties. Proper specification. 2

3 Boundary conditions When solving the Navier-Stokes equation and continuity equation, appropriate initial conditions and boundary conditions need to be applied. In the example here, a no-slip boundary condition is applied at the solid wall. Boundary conditions will be treated in more detail in this lecture. 3

4 Overview Boundary conditions are a required component of the mathematical model. Boundaries direct motion of flow. Specify fluxes into the computational domain, e.g. mass, momentum, and energy. Fluid and solid regions are represented by cell zones. Material and source terms are assigned to cell zones. Boundaries and internal surfaces are represented by face zones. Boundary data are assigned to face zones. orifice (interior) orifice_plate and outlet orifice_plate-shadow inlet fluid wall Example: face and cell zones associated with pipe flow through orifice plate 4

5 Neumann and Dirichlet boundary conditions When using a Dirichlet boundary condition, one prescribes the value of a variable at the boundary, e.g. u(x) = constant. When using a Neumann boundary condition, one prescribes the gradient normal to the boundary of a variable at the boundary, e.g. n u(x) = constant. When using a mixed boundary condition a function of the form au(x)+b n u(x) = constant is applied. Note that at a given boundary, different types of boundary conditions can be used for different variables. 5

6 Flow inlets and outlets A wide range of boundary conditions types permit the flow to enter and exit the solution domain: General: pressure inlet, pressure outlet. Incompressible flow: velocity inlet, outflow. Compressible flows: mass flow inlet, pressure far-field. Special: inlet vent, outlet vent, intake fan, exhaust fan. Boundary data required depends on physical models selected. General guidelines: Select boundary location and shape such that flow either goes in or out. Not mandatory, but will typically result in better convergence. Should not observe large gradients in direction normal to boundary near inlets and outlets. This indicates an incorrect problem specification. Minimize grid skewness near boundary. 6

7 Pressure boundary conditions Pressure boundary conditions require static gauge pressure inputs: p = p + absolute The operating pressure input is set separately. Useful when: static operating Neither the flow rate nor the velocity are known (e.g. buoyancy-driven flows). p absolute pressure gauge/static pressure operating pressure pressure level operating pressure A free boundary in an external or unconfined flow needs to be defined. vacuum 7

8 Pressure inlet boundary (1) One defines the total gauge pressure, temperature, and other scalar quantities at flow inlets: p p total total p 2 = static + incompressible flows = p static 1 ρ v 2 k 1 (1 + M 2 2 k /( k 1) ) compressible flows Here k is the ratio of specific heats (c p /c v ) and M is the Mach number. If the inlet flow is supersonic you should also specify the static pressure. Suitable for compressible and incompressible flows. Mass flux through boundary varies depending on interior solution and specified flow direction. The flow direction must be defined and one can get non-physical results if no reasonable direction is specified. Outflow can occur at pressure inlet boundaries. In that case the flow direction is taken from the interior solution. 8

9 Pressure inlet boundary (2) For non-isothermal incompressible flows, one specifies the inlet temperature. For compressible flows, one specifies the total temperature T 0, which is defined as the temperature that the flow would have if it were brought to a standstill under isentropic conditions: T 0 = T S k 1 1+ M 2 2 Here k is the ratio of specific heats (c p /c v ), M is the Mach number, and T s is the static temperature. 9

10 Pressure outlet boundary Here one defines the static/gauge pressure at the outlet boundary. This is interpreted as the static pressure of the environment into which the flow exhausts. Usually the static pressure is assumed to be constant over the outlet. A radial equilibrium pressure distribution option is available for cases where that is not appropriate, e.g. for strongly swirling flows. 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. Pressure outlet must always be used when model is set up with a pressure inlet. 10

11 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 but other profiles can be implemented too. Intended for incompressible flows. The total (stagnation) properties of flow are not fixed. Stagnation properties vary to accommodate prescribed velocity distribution. Using in compressible flows can lead to non-physical results. Avoid placing a velocity inlet too close to a solid obstruction. This can force the solution to be non-physical. 11

12 Outflow boundary Outflow boundary conditions are used to model flow exits where the details of the flow velocity and pressure are not known prior to solution of the flow problem. Appropriate where the exit flow is close to a fully developed condition, as the outflow boundary condition assumes a zero normal gradient for all flow variables except pressure. The solver extrapolates the required information from interior. Furthermore, an overall mass balance correction is applied. 12

13 Restrictions on outflow boundaries Outflow boundaries cannot be used: With compressible flows. With the pressure inlet boundary condition (use velocity inlet instead) because the 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 or when backflow occurs (in that case use pressure b.c.). Gradients in flow direction are significant. Conditions downstream of exit plane impact flow in domain. outflow condition ill-posed outflow condition not obeyed outflow condition obeyed outflow condition closely obeyed 13

14 Modeling multiple exits Using outflow boundary condition: Mass flow divided equally among all outflow boundaries by default. Flow rate weighting (FRW) set to one by default. For uneven flow distribution one can specify the flow rate weighting for each outflow boundary: m i =FRW i /ΣFRW i. The static pressure then varies among the exits to accommodate this flow distribution. velocity inlet FRW 1 FRW 2 Can also use pressure outlet boundaries to define exits. velocity-inlet (v,t 0 ) or pressure-inlet (p 0,T 0 ) pressure-outlet (p s ) 1 pressure-outlet (p s ) 2 14

15 Other inlet and 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 free-stream 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. 15

16 Determining turbulence parameters When turbulent flow enters domain at inlet, outlet, or at a far-field boundary, boundary values are required 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. 16

17 Turbulence intensity The turbulence intensity I is defined as: u Here k is the turbulent kinetic energy and u is the local velocity magnitude. Intensity and length scale depend on conditions upstream: Exhaust of a turbine. Intensity = 20%. Length scale = 1-10 % of blade span. Downstream of perforated plate or screen. Intensity = 10%. Length scale = screen/hole size. Fully-developed flow in a duct or pipe. I = Intensity = 5%. Length scale = hydraulic diameter. 2 3 k 17

18 Wall boundaries Used to bound fluid and solid regions. In viscous flows, no-slip condition enforced at walls. Tangential fluid velocity equal to wall velocity. Normal velocity component is set to be zero. Alternatively one can specify the shear stress. Thermal boundary condition. Several types available. Wall material and thickness can be defined for 1-D or in-plane 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. 18

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 19

20 Periodic boundaries Used when physical geometry of interest and expected flow pattern and the thermal solution are of a periodically repeating nature. Reduces computational effort in problem. Two types available: 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. 20

21 Periodic boundaries: examples p = 0: p > 0: 4 tangential inlets computational domain Rotationally periodic boundaries flow direction Streamlines in a 2D tube heat exchanger Translationally periodic boundaries 21

22 Axis boundaries Used at the centerline (y=0) of a 2-D axisymmetric grid. Can also be used where multiple grid lines meet at a point in a 3D O-type grid. No other inputs are required. AXIS boundary 22

23 Cell zones: fluid A fluid zone is the 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. 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. 23

24 Porous media conditions Porous zone modeled as special type of fluid zone. Enable the porous zone option in the fluid boundary conditions 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. 24

25 Moving zones For single zone problems use the rotating reference frame model. Define the whole zone as moving reference frame. This has limited applicability. For multiple zone problems each zone can be specified as having a 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. Or each zone can be defined as moving mesh using the sliding mesh model. Must then also define interface. Mesh positions are calculated as a function of time. Relative motion must be tangential (no normal translation). 25

26 Cell zones: solid A solid zone is a group of cells for which only heat conduction is solved and no flow equations are solved. The material being treated as solid may actually be fluid, but it is assumed that no convection takes place. The only required input is material type so that appropriate material properties are being used. Optional inputs allow you to set a 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. 26

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 jumps. Interior walls. In that case also called thin walls. 27

28 Material properties For each zone, a material needs to be specified. For the material, relevant properties need to be specified: Density. Viscosity, may be non-newtonian. Heat capacity. Molecular weight. Thermal conductivity. Diffusion coefficients. Which properties need to be specified depends on the model. Not all properties are always required. For mixtures, properties may have to be specified as a function of the mixture composition. 28

29 Fluid density For constant density, incompressible flow: ρ = constant. For compressible flow: ρ = p absolute /RT. Density can also be defined as a function of temperature (polynomial, piece-wise polynomial, or the Boussinesq model where ρ is considered constant except for the buoyancy term in the momentum equations) or be defined with user specified functions. For incompressible flows where density is a function of temperature one can also use the so-called incompressible-idealgas law: ρ = p operating /RT. Generally speaking, one should set p operating close to the mean pressure in the domain to avoid round-off errors. However, for high Mach number flows using the coupled solver, set p operating to zero. 29

30 When is a problem properly specified? Proper specification of boundary conditions is very important. Incorrect boundary conditions will lead to incorrect results. Boundary conditions may be overspecified or underspecified. Overspecification occurs when more boundary conditions are specified than appropriate and not all conditions can hold at the same time. Underspecification occurs when the problem is incompletely specified, e.g. there are boundaries for which no condition is specified. Commercially available CFD codes will usually perform a number of checks on the boundary condition set-up to prevent obvious errors from occurring. 30

31 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. 31
