 May 3, 2006, 21:42 Re: Faf Field Boundary Condition #4 Sarah Guest   Posts: n/a Thanks. I am developing my own code based on finite volume method, and the flow is high subsonic - and compressible. Actually, it is an airfoil-like shape, if I define the far field like U=Uinf, V=0, T=Tinf, P=Pinf, then I need to define a very large domain which needs a large number of grid points, and it is impossible, practically. So, I need to make the domiain smaller, but I have to know what sort of corrections I should make. Please give me some advice, even if it might be slightly helpful. Appreciate it. Sarah

Please see the paper Far-field boundary conditions for transonic lifting solutions to the Euler equations THOMAS, J. L.;SALAS, M. D. (NASA, Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA) AIAA Journal 1986 0001-1452 vol.24 no.7 (1074-1080) It is also explained in the book of Blazek. http://www.cfd-online.com/Books/show...hp?book_id=263

 May 5, 2006, 01:04 Re: Faf Field Boundary Condition #6 RW Guest   Posts: n/a There is a range of methods that you can use for your far-field boundary conditions. A good review of these methods can be found in Modeling Artificial Boundary Conditions for Compressible Flow, Colonius, T, Annu. Rev. Fluid Mech. 36: 315-345, 2004 Hope it helps.
