Default Implementation of pressure-inlet for FVM
Posts: n/a

I develop a program using Finite Volume Method(FVM). I need implement the pressure-inlet boundary conditions. Who knows,or has the source code about pressure-inlet for FVM? Looking forward to your replies.Thanks! Yang

Hi !!

first derivative of pressure normal to the boundary equals to zero.

(\partial p)/ (\partial n)=0

for all boundaries except the outflow. At the outflow specify p=0.

With these conditions, you will get the pseudo-pressure. This will, however, not affect the correctness of the velocity field. The actual pressure boundary conditions are complicated, so it is best to use the pseudo-pressure field to compute the velocity field and then solve the pressure Poisson equation to get the actual pressure if, and when, necessary.

The inlet velocity is usually assumed as time constant. So, the pressure boundary condition on the inlet can be derived from the NSE as, for incompressible flows: gradient_pressure=-rho*g+rho*vieo*Laplacian_velocity
