I've marked the BC along cell faces. You can pass the information in many ways, for example using a node based approach where you save all cells/elements connected to a certain node or alternatively using a face-based approach where you save the two or three points of the face and the cells on the two sides of the face.

However, I would not use a downloaded grid unless you are able to modify it somehow. I would think that you would need to show grid convergence as a part of your studies. Can't do that with just one grid. I would think that you would be better off with a self-generated structured grid that you can modify as needed.
