Default Can we model spherical symmetry in Fluent !!!
Posts: n/a
Dear All, I have one query regarding spherical symmetry...e.g.consider Bomb Geometry. It essentially expands as sphere. Now does Fluent/Gambit has the capability of applying spherically Symmetrical Boundary conditions ? and solving it ? or can we model Sphere in Fluent/Gambit and essentially solve them? I will appreciate your contributions on it.. Thank you for cooperation. Sincerely, Ashish

As far as I know, spherical symmetry option is not available in Fluent. However, you will still be able to simulate only arbitrarily small small part of the complete geometry by employing rotational periodicity of a "slice" of the sphere, possibly even halving it using plane symmetry.

Good luck, George
