Default 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.
