Hello all,

I am a PhD student, writing a CFD code for a laminar flow in cylindrical axisymetric coordinate. I can not converge my code and I think the problem is in exerting boundary conditions of pressure correction equation.

I will be so thankful if anybody can send me the boundary conditions of Pressure correction equation in SIMPLE algorithm.

Thanks everybody.
Good Luck

Normaly there are 2 kinds of conditions at boundary, either the pressure at boundary is given and normal velocity is unknown or vice versa.
1.Given pressure : if guessed pressure field is arranged such that at boundary P*= Pgiven, then value of the P' at the boundary will be zero.
2.Given normal velocity: for example if the velocity has be given just at western face, just the coefficient of aw at pressure correction Eq will be zero, and other coefficients don't change. and u* at west shouldn't be corrected. (because it is given as boundary condition and does not change) it is illustrated in Numerical heat transfer and fluid flow by patankar.

Have a look at the book 'An introduction to computational fluid dynamics, the finite volume method' by H. K. Versteeg & W. Malalasekera.
