How do you create a proper non-reflecting boundary conditions? Our solution for pressure looks very wrong. Does anyone have any experience here? Jonathan

Guest   Posts: n/a I have never performed this problem in FLUENT, but at one time I had printed off some of the validation studies that FLUENT did on it's own code. One of these was on Laminar Flow Around a Circular Cylinder (Re = 20, 40, 100). It must have come from a seperate folder on the original documentation disc that came with FLUENT (5.0), as I can't find it in with the regular user documentation manual that I have access too. As for the non-reflecting boundary conditions, you could try having all of you external boundaries be inlets and outlets, but you wouldn't necessarily have standard shaped domain. Cheers, Tim.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND YOUR PHRASE:NON REFLECTING BOUNDARIES? YOU MEAN NO-SHAPED DOMAIN?
