 August 24, 2010, 18:35 Pressure boundary condition #1 Senior Member   Join Date: Nov 2009 Location: Michigan Posts: 135 Rep Power: 7 For a problem like laminar flow in a lid driven cavity, we specify the pressure boundary condition as dp/dn = 0. How do we arrive at this boundary condition?

However, I don't recall well the cavity case.

Hence dp/dn normal to the wall is considered negligible and can be ignored. Thanks CCTech Pune
