hi all

i have to apply this boundary condition as a outlet condition for my case:

i have studied this in Ferziger and Peric [page 273] when:

phi = any dependent variable (e.g. velocity, pressure etc.)

but i couldn't understand what is the physical meaning of this boundary condition and actually what is the difference between this and pressure outlet B.C.?!
