 May 24, 2019, 07:37 Periodic Boundary condition for Taylor Green Vortex problem #1 New Member   djr4cfd Join Date: Jan 2018 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 3 I am trying to write a Python program to simulate Taylor green test problem. It is mentioned in research article that I need to use 'periodic boundary' condition for the same. Can anyone explain to me, how I can implement periodic boundary condition?? Here is the doi of the article based on which I am trying to write the code. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jcp.2018.07.058

Details on how to do that depend on the discretization, but the idea remains the same. djr4cfd likes this.

So are you asking how to implement that in your code? What scheme as you programming? djr4cfd likes this.

This involves the discretisation of Navier stokes equations for momentum and an additional pressure equation as suggested in the literature. We have the analytical solution of NS for Taylor Green vortex problem, given in the literature. i.e. we have u(x,y,t), v(x,y,t) and P(x,y,t). For boundary conditions all that is mentioned is that it is periodic. As I am a beginner in CFD, I really dont know much about periodic BCs.
