However, when you solve the real free surface, you don't use slip boundary. You use a stress balance equation for free surface, and the stress comes from outside pressure and surface tension.

At a standard wall boundary we use a no slip condition, so the velocity would be zero at the wall. If this condition was used for free surface flows it would mean that the interface (gas-liquid) can not move in the vacinity of the wall. In reality this is true but I believe the mechanism differs in that the liquid molecules are so small that they simply move toward or away from the wall as required (as the interface moves along the wall)and therby creating the "illusion?", on a macroscopic scale, that the interface is slipping along the wall.

 January 29, 2003, 20:54 Re: slip B.C #4 xueying Guest   Posts: n/a Slip BC boundary means that in the normal direction, you can't have velocity, and in the tangential direction, you don't have stress (t.(n.T)=0). I use this boundary condition to get the result which is used as initial guess for my free surface problem.
