 May 14, 2013, 15:07 periodic boundary condition #1 Member   rasool Join Date: Apr 2013 Posts: 41 Rep Power: 5 hi I am simulating a channel with mixer in 2D. the velocity profile of inlet and outlet in channel must be similar and equal but their pressure are not similar it is like periodic boundary condition with mass flow rate defined but i don't want that mass flow from outlet come to inlet because they are mixed and my inlet must be unmixed how can create this condition? in past i tried to make it with periodic interface constant mass flow rate but my outlet mixed component goes to inlet now I actived gravity along the channel and I am wating for answer. thanks regard

Why must the inlet and outlet be similar and equal? Do you have multiple of these things lined up? If the mixture builds up in each row you need to put something in the periodic boundary to handle that. Because your flow is not actually periodic - the mixture builds up each row - so you have to make some of it disappear so it can be periodic.

You don't impose it, it is an output of the simulation. And the inlet will match the outlet, that is how periodic boundaries work. And you will not be able to model the mixing you show here as it is not even close to periodic. But it looks close to fully mixed even after one mixer so it is just going to stay mixed all the way through. Or do you need to be more precise about the level of mixing? If so, why? rasool motamedi likes this.

I am sure that CFX can do it with a CEL or other things. Now I am searchig in mesh conection thanks

Do you know why? thaanks regards how can save all of transient results? where can save variables? Only I can see final result?
