 January 7, 2008, 05:40 boundary condition for impulsive start #1 sekar Guest   Posts: n/a hi, I have developed a code for cartesian grid method. It gives good results for flow past circular cylinder. Now I want to simulate flow past an impulsively started airfoil. Can any one help me in specifying boundary condition for velocity for an impulsively started flow? Thanks for your advice

Sachin's recommendation is easier.
