Default Symmetry boundary condition
Posts: n/a
Hello all,

This is a question about the symmetry boundary condition.

I have 4 mass inlets and 1 outlet as bondary conditions in my problem.But after employing a symmetry BC which will reduce the geometry, I have 1 mass inlet and one-fourth of the outlet.

When I check for mass flow rates(report-->fluxes) for this mass inlet and outlet, the values I get, will it be for that specific mass inlet or does it takes into account all the mass inlets.(which would be present without the symmetry walls)

Thanks and Regards, Shankar.

It should refer to the specific mass inlet.

However there is a tutorial case which shows the symmetry BC use.
