I know that in outflow boundary we assume a zero normal gradient condition and use upwind scheme for approximation. However, I saw this sentence in a book which I do not understand; "Convective fluxes are usually assumed to be independent of the coordinate normal to an outflow boundary." What does it exactly mean and why are we allowed to make that assumption?
