translational periodic boundary condition
 
Hi all

I read the fluent tutorial but I couldn't apply the translational periodic boundary condition in the 3d.

Did anyone of you work with it?!! my question is if I have 6 faces and I know the faces that I want to apply the translational periodic boundary condition on them which one is the periodic and which is its shadow

There is misunderstood between tut. 2 and tut. 15

I need a help

If you run the grid check in fluent it should report the direction vector of your periodicity. The periodic face is upstream (relative to vector) and shadow downstream.

the repeated faces
 
Hi

Thanks mark I would like to ask, the 6 faces 2 of them are the periodic face and its shadow but which faces will be repeated, in the x direction or in the y direction or how can I identify them

Please, find a solution for me
