 July 15, 1998, 08:41 Boundary Conditions at Corner #1 Hua Zhou Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, friends, In 3D problems, the point at corner usually has several surface which should be applied boundary condition. This can increase error at this point, so this point usually is the source of error and the hardest point to treat. I am confused about this problems for a long time, who can give me some idea on how to cope with it? Best Regards, Hua Zhou Shenyang Institute of Aeronautical Engineering

Even with a cell-vertex method there need not be a problem, because the boundary conditions can be applied to faces of the dual mesh. In my opinion this is the correct way to handle boundary conditions. If you must apply boundary conditions at vertices, I suppose you will have to come up with some sort of priority list saying which conditions take precedence when an ambiguity exists.

This is the physical reality. The corner volume has three faces facing a boundary! Like the previous poster wrote, if you look at it from a finite volume perspective it is all natural.
