Consequently you need 2 upstream informations and one upstream: AT the inlet: the 2 upstream information are for example u=uinfinity and T =Tinfinity. The downstream information needs to be extrapolated At the outlet: 2 extrapolated information: for example du/dx=0 at the outlet and dT/dx=0 at the outlet and 1 downstream information for example P=P backstream If you don;t understand review the theory of characteristics.

 July 26, 2005, 07:14 Re: subsonic inlet-exit boundary conditions #6 enis Guest   Posts: n/a hi slyvian, what did you mean by "P=P backstream" at the outlet. should P_backstream be a certain number? or P_{i+1}=P_i ?(as in continuative boundary condition). thanks. enis

 July 26, 2005, 10:16 Re: subsonic inlet-exit boundary conditions #7 sylvain Guest   Posts: n/a When the flow is subsonic, you have two characteristic with a positiv slope and one with a negative slope. (assuming a velocity being positive). Hence, one of the boundary condition needs to be specified outside of the domain. Let's say you want to specify the backstream pressure as your outside of the domain condition. Then you can specify P=Pbackstream. If you are considering an external flow then Pbackstream=Patmospheric (remember that along a characteristic line the pressure is constant). If you consider an internal flow then it depends on the type of problem I guess. Hope it helps. If it sounds obscure to you check out the theory of characteristics, and how the eigenvectors and eigenvalues are to be calculated and how they relate with CFD problems Sylvain
