Detailed Description

This boundary condition provides a volumetric- OR mass-flow normal vector boundary condition by its magnitude as an integral over its area with a swirl component determined by the angular speed, given in revolutions per minute (RPM)

The basis of the patch (volumetric or mass) is determined by the dimensions of the flux, phi. The current density is used to correct the velocity when applying the mass basis.


Patch usage

Property Description Required Default value
phi flux field name no phi
rho density field name no rho
flowRate flow rate profile yes
rpm rotational speed profile yes

Example of the boundary condition specification:

    myPatch
    {
        type            swirlFlowRateInletVelocity;
        flowRate        constant 0.2;
        rpm             constant 100;
    }
Note
  • the flowRate and rpm entries are DataEntry types, able to describe time varying functions. The example above gives the usage for supplying constant values.
  • the value is positive into the domain
