 January 14, 2008, 20:39 non-reflecting boundary condition #1 shuo Guest   Posts: n/a Hi I am solving the Navier-Stokes equation using TVD schemes. I tried using non-reflecting boundary conditions proposed by K.W.Thompson for the far field but the information is still being reflected back. Is there any other options Cheers Shuo

So to minimise reflections one should try to use a circular shaped boundary placed well into the far field with the acoustics sources at the origin. If your grid does not allow the use of a circular shape a similar effect can be achieved by modifying the boundary conditions for a specified acoustic origin represenatative of the actual sources. At higher computational cost one can introduce an absorbing layer consisting of rows cells beyond the boundary in which a modified form of the Navier-Stokes are solved with a view to absorbing the acoustic motion while presenting the smallest impedance mismatch at the boundary. This is probably the most common approach, particularly for exit boundary conditions, when solving for turbulent flow.

There are plenty of methods, see e.g. Givoli, D. 1991, Journal of Computational Physics,vol.94, page 1.
