See above. The BC requirement for pressure at the wall is normally zeroGradient. For velocity with a slip wall, there are two different conditions to be met normal to the wall and parallel to the wall, which I believe the slip boundary condition handles.

Hi all,
sorry to revive such an old post.
1. If I use full-slip for velocity, is there a need to specify pressure ? I guess it should calculate using the velocity at the wall ?

2. What if I use pressure bc as "slip" as well with Velocity bc as "slip" . It should be same as pressure bc "zeroGradient" ? I do not get same answers if I do this.

Yes, I think you generally need to specify zeroGradient, but you're right sometimes depending on the solver the 'boundary condition' for pressure is pre-determined by the velocity boundary conditions. 2. I think slip might be sort of a vector boundary condition (different equations for different vector components), and since pressure is a scalar maybe it took the first condition of slip (which could be the no penetration equation u1=0) as the pressure boundary condition instead of d u2 / dn = 0.

If we have a scalar it will set it to zeroGradient (I did not check this out, so it is just a logical consequence). For a vector field, the normal component should be zero (sliding). It would be a wall (no fluxes can pass) but there is finally no shearing based on the fact that we assume that there are no viscous effect.

Hello
I have a question.In flow with wall slip condition there is one less boundary condition in related to no-slip wall.Why it does not make any problem in terms of deficiency in one boundary condition?

Using a k epsilon model with k and e wall functions as BC, should I use slip or no-slip for U? I mean, i think I need no-sliip because I don't want to model the viscous layer, but I don't know how OF handle it internally.

The usage of wall-functions does not require to resolve the viscous sublayer. That´s why they were generated. See the book of Wilcox or other literature such as Férziger & Peric. fede32 and vivek05 like this. __________________ Keep foaming, Tobias Holzmann

Hi Tobi,

Though it is an old message, I have a question about that. For a slip BC, I generally choose slip for velocity and zeroGradient for pressure. My question is that for a temperature dependent solver like buoyantBoussinesqSimpleFaom, what BC should I choose for temperature when the wall is considered to slip?

Cheers,
Razon

 June 10, 2019, 04:38 noslip means noslip #13 Member   Tony Ladd Join Date: Aug 2013 Posts: 43 Rep Power: 7 From our experience I would say noSlip is not always equivalent to a fixedValue patch. If the surface is moving noSlip imposes the local velocity of the surface on to the fluid next to the patch. This makes it easy to implement a rotating patch which has no fixedValue equivalent.

could any one please help me that how to apply condition for pressure and velocity flow between two plates if the flow is due to the motion of upper plates.(OpenFoam)

2. how to use inletOutlet and outletInlet boundary conditions?can we use both at a time or once at a time?
3.using inletOutlet and outletInletin OpenFoam should we define in both files i.e U ,p
