 July 4, 2008, 10:44 spanwiperiodic boundary condition for LES #1 Sungho Yoon Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, I'm doing LES for a backward-facing step. I want to impose periodic boundary condition in spanwise direction (on both side walls). However, it seems I can't apply periodic boundary condition. I can apply wall condition or symmetric condition. But I don't think it is a good boundary condition for LES. Would anyone help me? Thanks in advance. Sungho

And people often use periodic BC for side walls. If you look through literature you will find for channel flows periodic BC is almost always used for side walls. Can you please explain why you think its not a good idea.

What I meant was I can't find periodic boundary condition in CFX for backward-facing step. (I can use only symmetry, wall, etc...) I'm trying to validate my data with the following two papers. 1. Direct numerical simulation of turbulent flow over a backward-facing step, JFM, 1997, vol 330, pp 349-374 - HUNG LE a1 , PARVIZ MOIN a1 and JOHN KIM 2. Backward-facing step measurement at low Reynolds number, Re h= 5000 S Jovic, DM Driver - NASA Technical Memorandum, 1994 - ntrs.nasa.gov

Otherwise you have to use a GGI and that is not recommended, especially for LES applications. Glenn Horrocks
