Periodic Meshing

Periodic boundary conditions are used in AcuSolve when only a subset of the full flow domain is simulated.

The subset of the full domain, when integrated, gives the behavior of the entire domain. To support AcuSolve analysis with periodic boundary conditions, the mesh generated on periodic faces should match. For example, assume that Face 1 and Face 2 are to be periodic, then every node on Face 1 should have a corresponding matching node on Face 2. The matching process uses a translation or rotational transformation. Thus, periodicity can be either Translational or Axisymmetric. AcuConsole supports both of these options.
