 August 29, 2005, 22:22 Handling boundary condition in Fluent #1 sak Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Fluent users, i have a question, like in the geometry the periodicity between the boundaries is a mixed type of translation and rotation. the boundaries are periodic but in fluent while dealing with boundary conditions, i cant select the boundary as both translation and rotation. any idea as how to handle the conditions if the periodicity is both translation and rotation. thanks in advance

Hi Sak!

I am intresting this problem too) My mesh in this image

Do anyone have ideas how create both translation and rotation periodic in fluent?

Thanks
Alex.

This along with options about 'mesh motion' in 'Cell Zone Condition' should resolve your problem.

 March 25, 2013, 05:27 Total pressure at the outlet is more than inlet #4 New Member   deepthi Join Date: Feb 2013 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 13 hi I am doing 3d modelling of a can combustor using k-e model.If I give mass flow inlet and pressure outlet or pressure inlet and pressure outlet I am getting total pressure at the outlet is more than total pressure at inlet.But there should be a pressure drop in reality in a combustor.Can u help?

But I am some questions about this problem Is it better to use: mesh motion or frame motion in my case? And how I am can set velocity (translation and rotation) mooved mesh or referense frame? Constants?
