NOTE: 3 DIRECTIONS SIMUTANEOUSLY NOT JUST1.

Can you give me a more detailly specification on how about carry out it as you said. you mean that i can make a periodic boudary condition, for example taking the x direction, and ignoring the other directions (y and z).And the periodic boundary conditions for the y and z directions can be done in the solver(fluent or cfx).It is just my comprehansion,right? However, how to treat the non-consistent mesh on the faces which are in the y and z directions?The number of the mesh is not equal for them. Thanks very much. Good luck,far.

First in mesher and then taken to solver to add another periodicity (conformal in this case). But it is your choice to make conformal or non-conformal peridocity.
