Boundary conditions … (Tips & Tricks)

Did You Know that AcuSolve contains a set of boundary conditions that automatically sets a boundary layer profile at an inlet boundary? When using the inflow boundary condition types of mass_flux, flow_rate, and average_velocity, AcuSolve computes an appropriate boundary layer profile for the velocity and turbulence fields based on the the distance from no-slip walls, and estimated Reynolds Number. The profile is re-computed at each time step such that deforming meshes are properly accounted for in the calculation. This boundary condition provides a robust method of automatically specifying physically realistic inlet conditions. It is much more realistic than specifying a constant velocity condition for internal flow applications
