Symmetry boundary condition in Fluent
 
I have a doubt about the symmetry boundary condition in Fluent. I want to carry out a CFD analysis of flow over a car. Will using the symmetry boundary condition give the same level of accuracy as using the full model?

Mathematically it gives the same.

But your domain is really a symmetrical or not you should be sure with it first.

your boundary conditions should be also symmetrical

boundary condition (symmetry vs periodic doubt)
 
Dear friends,
i am doing 3D wing analysis, i have doubt on boundary conditions in fluent ie both symmetry and periodic, anybody have the answer please let me know briefly,for what kind of purpose to use symmetry & periodic boundary conditions, please tell any example with problem.
