Model size can be reduced drastically if periodicity of a flow field is leveraged … (Tips &Tricks)

Did You Know that the model size can be reduced drastically if periodicity of a flow field is leveraged. For example in the turbine section, it is common to only model a sector of the complete device.

For example in the turbine section, it is common to only model a sector of the complete device.

The assumption of periodicity requires identical meshes on two surfaces

Periodic meshing is a new feature included in 11.0 SA-101. In the CFD user profile go to mesh –>2D –> periodic mesh.
