 November 18, 2006, 04:52 periodic boundary condition? #1 Sima Baheri Guest   Posts: n/a Hi every one I use ICEM-CFD as a grid generation software for PHOENICS. My geometry is very complex so I use multi-block method. It's a turbomachinery problem so I need periodic boundary condition but cyclic boundary condition in main menu/sources) doesn't work in this case. I'd be grateful if you help me. Regards, Sima Baheri

I do think that the only way to stablish periodic boundary conditions is writing a ground or a inform code. Does anybody know any other way? You will find at inform lessons all you need to write a customized boundary condition. You will just have to write down your "periodic" equation for your boundary. By the way, at \\phoenics\d_polis\d_enc\CYCLIC.htm you will find what is cyclic boundary conditions for PHOENICS: "The variable XCYCLE is used to activate cyclic boundary conditions in the x-direction. If a cyclic boundary at x=0 is not required, XCYCLE is left at its default setting of F; if it is set T, the whole x=0 boundary is treated as cyclic. This option is active for any one-, two- or three-dimensional problem in which the x-direction is present; that is, whenever NX is greater than one. Cyclic boundary conditions are required whenever the two ends of the calculation domain in the x-direction join up with one another. This can occur in a one-dimensional single- loop calculation, or in a polar-coordinate calculation in which the whole angular extent from 0 to 360 degree is to be considered. It is because of this latter application, that the x- direction (which is, as explained earlier, the circumferential direction when polar coordinates are used) is chosen to be the one in which cyclic boundary conditions are provided." I hope I could help you. Regards, Carlos.

 October 20, 2007, 09:20 Re: periodic boundary condition? #6 Steven Guest   Posts: n/a This year (2007). There's also discussion on the subject on CHAMs web site, e.g. http://www.simuserve.com/phoenics/d_polis/d_enc/fdf.htm and elsewhere (I'd need to search for more). Actually people have been doing periodic bcs in PHOENICS from the early days (staring with Chandra Prakash in the '90's). The only catch is to make the boundary in the x-direction. Unfortunately you cannot readily do it in the y or z directions.
