 August 24, 2005, 12:49 pressure at wall #1 Mike Guest   Posts: n/a iam solving NS equations using FV code and pressure at wall appeared at my equation. What value should i take for P or how do i discretize dp/dy at a cell near the wall? Is backward differencing ok for pressure? Thank you

Example, The term d2p/dy2 = (pi+1 - 2pi + pi-1)/dy2 ----(A) At the lower wall, pi-1 is outside the domain; when you apply dp/dy=0 at lower wall i.e (pi+1 - pi-1)/2dy = 0, OR pi-1 = pi+1 Substitute this back in EQ.(A) Thus, d2p/dy2 = (2pi+1 - 2pi)/dy2

But in FV method it may be necessary to specify the pressure for evaluating the wall boundary flux. There are several alternatives that can be used: 1. Extrapolate from inside the computational domain. 2. If you want pressure gradient you can use one-sided differences. 3. Setting normal pressure gradient to zero is only an approximation that is valid for thin boundary layers. A more consistent way to do it is to take the projection of the momentum equation along the normal to the wall to get an equation for the normal pressure gradient.
