Does anybody know haw can I introduce "traction free" BC at the outlet of my domain in CFX?

What is a traction free BC?

alinik November 25, 2010 23:18

this relation is called "traction"


whenever it equals to zero, there is no traction or we can say it is traction free

by the way "mu" is viscosity of the fluid

I assume u is the velocity field. What is p and I?

Can you explain what is the physical significance of this?

alinik November 27, 2010 07:03

P is pressure and I is the Identical matrix. it is said that this kind of bc does not affect the upstream flow conditions significantly

I see.

You may be able to do it as a CEL function on an outlet boundary condition with a CEL specified velocity or pressure, but you probably have to implement it in fortran.
