KIVA (Wall boundary conditions)
I try to run a gas flow in a duct in Kiva with uniform inflow boundary. When I apply the law of the wall as a boundary condition in kiva, the tangential velocity components are not zero at the walls, just the normal velocity is zero.
Also the average velocity is different in various cross sections.
I am wondering if any body has any idea about these.
I also had a similar problem before, since law of the wall condition doesn't work properly when you have a fine mesh.
To start with, I could recommend you to try either running the code with different boundary condition (free slip to check out what's going on) or to have a proper look at the law of the wall subroutine.
I tried to deactivate it when i run my code with very fine meshes, and at least the code doesn't crash.
hope it helps
