Hi,

I am trying to solve a problem in which the channel is rectangular and the bottom wall will have a suction, meaning the fluid near the bottom wall will go downward with a certain velocity. How would I specify such boundary condition in FLUENT?

Thanks,
Akim

Pressure outlet?
I'm not sure if you can set a mass flow inlet or a velocity inlet and then if you can specify a negative value...

I'm not sure I understand your proble..post a picture.

Actually,

My adviser told me to model a wall as a "porous wall" which will allow fluid to seep through. Is there a way to specify that in FLUENT?

Thanks,
Akim

put ur suction boundary as pressure outlet
write a udf using DEFINE_PROFILE and place it on this boundary..should work

I am doing the same thing except my boundary is oscillating suction and injection.

Would you kindly elaborate on writing the UDF on the "DEFINE_PROFILE". I'm not too sure on UDFs.

Thanks,
Akim
