 January 3, 2008, 11:26 boundary condition:periodic on inlet and outlet #1 victor Guest   Posts: n/a Hi everyone, I encounter a problem about boundary condition. my model is a long duct.there are many ribs in it. in order to decrease the grid number. i have to choose only a small segment of the duct to be my compute domain. As the people said before, i set the inlet and outlet boundary condition as periodic, and creat a momentum source. but it's always error so the solver can't compute it. i don't know why. could you tell me how to solve it? Thanks in advance. victor.

Try to initialise the calculation with a previous run where you have used an inlet/outlet condition. Remember to specify the momentum source (pressure gradient) with the right value and sign.

You can use a periodic GGI connection between the ends of your duct section, and specify a pressure drop or a mass flow rate to get the periodic solution. Johnson

Message: SYMASS_ZIFCS_EL : The solver ran out of temporary space while building a linked list for a domain interface. Try setting the expert parameter "topology estimate factor zif" to a value greater than 1.0. Values higher than 1.2 should not be necessary. " do you know why? thank you very mucn! victor

You need to check that internal regins are defined as part of GGIs, and that the two sides of your periodic boundary are not defined on disconnected regions. Johnson
