 June 14, 2012, 04:28 Discretization of gradient vector - unstructured mesh #1 New Member   Join Date: Jun 2012 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 5 Hello, I have an unstructured triangular mesh that has two different zones (on bottom: zone1, on top: zone2). To impose the boundary condition at the interface, I have these equations: a [grad(T)*n]1 + b = c [grad(T)*n]2 + d Tf1 = Tf2 = Tf (interface values) where the indices 1 and 2 designate the zone and a, b, c and d are constant. I would like to know how can I descretize the scalar product grad(T)*n at the interface (if it was a structured mesh, I could use (Tf-T1)/ds and (T2-Tf)/ds, but this is not the case) to can impose the value of Tf at the interface. Thanks in advance Last edited by Dapb; June 15, 2012 at 03:55.
