Boundary layer
Hi everyone,
Im doing my cfd simulations on an autoclave. Actually this is a continuation project of another person.
Do i need to check for the boundary layer for internal flows, or boundary layer is maintained only in external flows?

you definitely have boundary layers in internal flow, but I am not sure if that was your question.

Hi mettler,
Thanks for the reply, but the person who did the project previously didnt consider any boundary layer thing and got his results?

Im a newbie to cfd and confused about this boundary layer thing..
Can anyone explain how to check boundary layer in ICEM CFD??

Thank you
