Halllo. I am working on a 3d wing simulation. I have a C-TYPE mesh and domain as the image shows.February 18, 2022 at 9:48 amRobAnsys EmployeeIf the facets don't exactly align you can't use the "normal" periodic options. Have a look in the non conformal interface options: you can use those to create periodics. Chances are your mesh nearly lines up but is out of tolerance somewhere.
However, if the flow is aligned with the wing just set a symmetry plane or use 2d. If it's not aligned you need to refine the mesh in the z-direction as 3 tet cells isn't enough.
February 19, 2022 at 1:53 pmmimozas1SubscriberFirst of all, thank you Rob for your immediate reaction to my question! It really helped.
I fixed the problems based on your advice but another one occurs. When i manually create the periodic b.c. with the left and right surcafe of the domain, i leave the box (matching, mapped, coupled) unchecked. So ansys creates a pseudo-surface to unite the two surfaces i impose the interaction and the periodic bc. My problem is that i want to specify the periodic conditions with 0 mass flow rate and 0 gauge pressure. But when i run the simulation occurs a floating point exception from the first iteration
The cause of this error might be the type of the pseudo-surfaces created?? (they are left to wall). If not do you have any other ideas?
Thanks a alot for your help and your time!

That implies the flow is parallel to those surfaces. You also set the periodic flow vector for the periodic bc, so x=0, y=0 and z=1 in this case.
February 21, 2022 at 4:22 pmmimozas1SubscriberThank you.
I corrected the vectors. With that adjustment the model runs without errors!
February 24, 2022 at 5:53 pmmimozas1SubscriberHallo Rob!
I am responding to your question about the reason i am using periodic b.c. if i have 0 mass flow rate and 0 gauge pressure.
The fact is i made i mistake. I didnt want to have 0 net rate but i wanted to achieve the following: everything that happens in one p.b.c.Face to happen to the next p.b.c.Face. Thinking about it again i think the most correct option would be to select GaugePressure0.
I would appreciate your opinion on this!
Thanks in advance for your help to us users!
February 25, 2022 at 10:50 amRobAnsys EmployeeIf the inlet flow is aligned with the geometry then the cross flow should be zero. Adding periodic boundaries may mean the solver adds a small cross flow, but that ought to be damped out as the solution converges. If you want to create a cross flow you need to resolve across the domain too.
March 2, 2022 at 10:49 ammimozas1SubscriberI have the inlet velocity to bem parallel to the chord of the wing. That means there is no spanwise velocity. But the velocity on top of the wing may have a spanwise velocity due to turbulent effects. That is why i want to add the periodic b.c.
I think makin the periodic conditions as Gauge Pressure 0 will do. But i am not sure if i have to make it on z or on x axis, as shown in the next picture.
March 2, 2022 at 11:55 amRobAnsys EmployeeIf you want to pick up that you'll need a wider domain and a lot more resolution.
March 2, 2022 at 8:35 pmmimozas1SubscriberYes, i am aware of that. I am just running a quik simullation to get acquainted with the physical model and not to get some good quality results.
Once i do this, i will work on mesh resolution more.
But the thing i am still trying to find is whereaw to have the GaugePressure=0 in flow direction of Z or X, according to what i described you about on my previous question.
Thanks a lot!
March 2, 2022 at 8:37 pmmimozas1SubscriberI think that it must be on Z axis but i am not really sure.
I think it is Z because the two periodic bound.conditions are perpendicular to this axis.
March 3, 2022 at 12:03 pmRobAnsys EmployeeZ is the direction of the periodic flow. https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/Secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v221/en/flu_ug/flu_ug_sec_periodic_overview.html covers the limitations.
