BC: inletOutlet,buoyantpressure,and $interFields
 
hi Foarmers:

I have been learning using OF for 3 months,now I am facing some tiny difficulties about BC.

I see in alpha1 dictionary, you can set
Code:

OUTLET
    {
        type            inletOutlet;
        inletValue      uniform 0;
        value          uniform 0;
    }

I interpret it as air can get in and get out, but while simulating , I find it water can get out too, so what does this mean?

in p_rgh dictionary,
Code:

walls
    {
        type            buoyantPressure;
        value                uniform 0;
    }

I dont get this buoyantPressure , ,,,some other cases set:
Code:

walls
    {
        type            fixedFluxPressure;
        value          uniform 0;
    }

what does this fixedFlusPressure mean and the difference between buoyantpressure?



also in p_rgh dictionary

Code:

outlet
    {
        type                fixedValue;
        value          $internalField;
    }

Does this $internalField mean it is calculated by the internaFields? can I just modify it to
Code:

atmosphere
    {
        type            totalPressure;
        p0              uniform 0;
        U              U;
        phi            phi;
        rho            rho;
        psi            none;
        gamma          1;
        value          uniform 0;
    }


and the k and epsilon dictionary, I know k can be caculated by 1/2*(u^2)....,but some time it cant be set this way, so I dont know how to set the value of them.....

your help is very appreciated.Thank you in advance.

hi you offer the site that look like not very helpful, i want to know the diference between buoyantpressure and fixedfluxpressure.

buoyantpressure vs fixedfluxpressure
 
Anyone knows the answer to the question in this thread?

I have a buoyantBoussinesqPimpleFoam that crashes if I use buoyantpressure , but converges perfectly if I use fixedfluxpressure. I've seen both BCs used in p_rgh. Anybody care to comment? Thanks

Sorry, I still dont know the difference between buoyantpressure and fixedfluxpressure.

Any clarity on the difference between them yet, sharonyue?

Hello!

Now I know that the difference between outletInlet and inletOutlet,

outletInlet:

outlet is a fixed value and inlet is zerogradient. Thats means if you set outlet value to be 0, so only 0alpha phase can get out. but any phase can get in.

inletOutlet:

vice versa.

Now I still dont know the difference between buoyantPressure and fixedFluxpressure. But looks like the first one is always used in VOF but the second one is used in two-fluid model. Im not sure.

Any comments is welcomed.
