 July 24, 2011, 17:34 Reflective walls #1 New Member   Tijery Join Date: Jan 2011 Posts: 25 Rep Power: 8 Sponsored Links I am doing real time wind tunnel numerical simulation in CFX. I want to set reflective walls for wind tunnels walls.Does any body knows how to set the reflective wall boundary conditions in CFX. the reflective conditions are applicable only for open type boundary conditions in CFX and not for wall type. please tell if any solution .!!!!

No am not doing radiation simulation ..but simple pressure wave reflection ..

u mean to say no slip boundary conditions are reflective by definition .

The reflection of pressure waves comes about from the zero normal velocity at the wall. Anything which stops (or even just impedes) flow normal to it will reflect pressure waves.

Thanks for the clarification !
Until now i am using free slip boundary conditions.. but i don't know know how to check weather how to check weather the wave is reflected or not . is there any post processing procedure ...
