infinite cylinder
 
Hi, If I want to model a infinite cylinder, should I use a periodic boundary condition or (as someone told me) can I use symmetry walls?? Thanks

Hi,

u have to use symmetry b.c. , because it takes the vol. element as a part of the infinite cylinder and properties at the surfaces are remains same.

Thanks
