aadicfd is on a distinguished road
I am creating a simulation setup for an helical tube heat exchanger in Openfoam. However due to complexity of the design and lower system space, I would like to create only a 5 degree segment and implement periodic boundary condition. Is it possible to implement periodic boundary condition for a helical tube? If yes, how should I define periodicity in the model setup?
