Default Periodic Boundary Condition in Polar Co-ordinates
Posts: n/a
Hi, I'm a PHOENICS CFD user and I'm trying to simulate a periodic flow in a simple pipe in cylindrical-polar co-ordinates. Unfortunately, PHOENICS CFD have this feature just for x direction, but I do have to use for the z direction, which is by default the axial direction in PHOENICS for the cylindrical-polar co-ordinates. Does anyone can help me? Thanks!

It's funny, but I got myself the answer! Now I can simulate any type of geometry in cylindrical-polar co-ordinates using the periodic flow feature in PHOENICS CFD, just as described by Patankar, Liu and Sparrow (1977). If one is under interest of anyone, just mail me.
