Default Symmetry boundary condition in Fluent
Posts: n/a
I have a doubt about the symmetry boundary condition in Fluent. I want to carry out a CFD analysis of flow over a car. Will using the symmetry boundary condition give the same level of accuracy as using the full model?

Mathematically it gives the same.

But your domain is really a symmetrical or not you should be sure with it first.
