 May 8, 2006, 05:30 Does the wall BC set k & e to zero? #1 Lucy Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Hi,all! I use the ske model and set the BC as "WALL" for some solid boundarys. But after caculation I ploted turbulence kinetic energy(k) along these "walls" and found them not equal to 0. Why??? I tried adding some source terms to the momentum equations, but the caculations diverged soon. I checked the values of k and found them quite large somewhere on the wall. I think this resulted in the divergence. Can anyone tell me how fluent set the "WALL" BC? If I change the boundary condition "wall" to "velocity inlet" and set velocity,k and e to 0, is there any problem? Any help will be very appreciated!

Maybe if you set the walls to be slip walls (in the wall boundary condition panel) you would get nonzero k and e.

I am trying to create a boundary condition in Fluent similar to the wall+source which can be found in CFX. Do you know if it's possible for me to use any kind of udf to do this? In particular what I would like to do is to add a mass flow rate source, instead of using the mass flow inlet boundary. This is because i need to perform some other operations which are only allowed on walls. Thanks a lot in advance! Marta
