oscillating airfoil in an inviscid fluid flow

How can we apply pressure boundary condition on airfoil surface oscillating in an inviscid fluid flow?

Re: oscillating airfoil in an inviscid fluid flow

Why do you need a pressure boundary condition, not the standard vanishing normal velocity on the airfoil?

I want to solve unsteady Euler equations using C-type mesh. that's why I need pressure boundary condition on the airfoil surface.

Re: oscillating airfoil in an inviscid fluid flow

the pressure BC can be obtained from the expression(latex math): {\partial p \over \partial n}=-\rho \vec{a}_b \cdot \vec{n} where \vec{a}_b is the acceleration of the body and \vec{n} is a vector normal to the surface.

Re: oscillating airfoil in an inviscid fluid flow

the equation you mentioned must be applied in the fluid and we know that fluid particles slip on the airfoil surface and for slip condition we know that acceleration of body is not equal to fluid particles !
