Wall pressure interpolation for buoyant flow
Dear CFD experts:
I am developing an unstructured code and encounter a problem whereby the flow vector is pointing in/out near the wall when buoyancy model is on.
I read from FLUENT manual that we can't set the normal pressure gradient at the wall = 0 when buoyant flow is simulated.
Can anyone please guide me on the proper method to interpolate the wall pressure? Any references to share? I need the wall pressure in order for me to evaluate the cell pressure gradient near the wall.
Thanks a lot.
Mirroring is not a good method when you have grav forces. Interpolation is the best way to achieve the pressure at the boundaries. Given this, use a second order gradient interpolation to connect Pcell with Pb - gives you second order accuracy.
Dear CFD Toy:
Thanks for your prompt reply.
I tried to use the gradient projection method to interpolate the wall pressure, i.e.
p_wall = p_cell + grad(p_cell) * d; where d is vector pointing from the near-wall cell to the wall face. For the evaluation of grad(p_cell), I use Grauss divergence theorem.
Is it the method that you have suggested in your previous reply?
In fact, I still see some velocities pointing in/out near the wall.
