 October 22, 2019, 12:45 Cylinder mesh - need for suggestions #1 New Member   Maveryck Andres Join Date: Mar 2019 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 7 Hi everyone currently I'm working on turbulence simulation with k-epsilon model over a cylinder channel. I'm getting a wird plot for all the variables and I'm pretty sure is because of the mesh, as you can see on the attached images the wird values of variable k are exactly located over the edges of the central block so I suspect there has to be a better way to mesh. Any suggestion will be welcome k.png Mesh.jpg

It is a quite simple case, cyclic on the inlet and outlet with the following boundary conditions (it is worth mentioning that yPlus at the walls is 0.2 approximately):

Epsilon boundary conditions
Code:
```dimensions      [0 2 -3 0 0 0 0];

internalField   uniform 0.6;

boundaryField
{
inlet
{
type            cyclic;
}

outlet
{
type            cyclic;
}

FixedWalls
{

}
}```
k boundary conditions
Code:
```internalField   uniform 0.05;

boundaryField
{
inlet
{
type            cyclic;
}

outlet
{
type            cyclic;
}

FixedWalls
{
type     fixedValue;
value     uniform 1.0e-08;
}
}```
U boundary conditions
Code:
```internalField   uniform (0.1 0 0);

boundaryField
{
inlet
{
type            cyclic;
}

outlet
{
type            cyclic;
}

FixedWalls
{
type            noSlip;
}
}```
The domain is a pipe with diameter = 0.1m and length = 0.1m and bulk velocity is fixed to 1.9 m/s through a momentumSource:

Code:
```momentumSource
{
type            meanVelocityForce;
active          yes;

selectionMode   all;

fields          (U);
Ubar            (1.9 0 0);
}```
