Hi everybody,
I want to apply this BC to my U: Code:
du/dx=dv/dy , dv/dx=0 any body knows how can I define this BC? any hint will valuable for me. Thank you.

what shape does your boundary have?is it aligned with x or y axis or any other?
Can't you simplify the formula on the boundary?

Hi
Is your problem 2D? If yes first BC says that div(V)=0 so I think this may be a problematic BC. For the second one I think you can use OF BCs.

These conditions are for only one boundary. I want to apply this two conditions for my boundary simultaneously. yes, I's 2D. the complete form of my bc is attached. thank you.

Hello,
without knowing the context of your problem, a good answer will be difficult. Which process do you calculate? What are P, theta, in and out in the attached figure? Have you tried to reformulate the BC using the PDE that is being solved?

Assume a cavity that its right wall is open and the conditions I refered above are the conditions at this open side. my solver is buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFoam and as I mentioned above the pressure is P=0 and the theta is the temperature. What is your meaning of 'reformulation of BC using the PDE that is being solved'? Thank you

Hello,
I'm afraid I cannot help, because I don't know this solver. What I mean by reformulating the BC is to make use of the differential equations for U in your solver to simplify your BC. Just a thought. If you explain why you choose this BC instead of showing only the equation, somebody might be able to help. What are you trying to solve conceptually, not mathematically? dv/dx=0 seems to make assumptions about the normal direction of the boundary and can't be applicable in general unless you have some anisotropic forces.

thank you Joe,
As I mentioned in my last post, I want to model an open cavity. this kind of cavities have an open side that have special conditions that I want to model it. I tried to replace it with other boundary conditions and even with a huge space with special BCs that might make my desired BC. but all of them failed. I will try if can I include this bc in my solver or not!!

Greetings to all,
Since adambarfi sent me an email the other day about this and although I'm not much of help here, here's what I know on the subject:

thank you Bruno,
I simplified my problem so that my problematic boundary has just one condition: Code:
dv/dx=0 any body knows how can I apply this condition? Thanks
