Periodic Boundary Conditions

Post by Sou »

Hi,
Is that possible to set a periodic boundary condition in the model?

Hi Sou,

What exactly do you mean with periodic? What kind of boundary condition did you have in mind? Because inducing a periodic condition is not that difficult if you include time and/or a wave function in the program setup?

Hi Kat,
I'm defining a wind farm in a Lake, at the moment I'm considering a 20km by 20km rectangular open water with a uniform depth of 25m. now I want to divide my rectangle into for example 16 squares of 5*5km. I want to put a turbine in the middle of each square and I want to apply periodic boundary conditions on each square so that having same temperature on the west and east sides of each square separately( Due to the wind turbine wake temp decreases at the back of the turbine).
West Temp = East Temp (square 1),
West Temp = East Temp (square 2),.....
I hope I clearly transferred what I have in mind.
I don't have any Idea of how to apply it, so if you please let me know step by step I'll be thankful.
Best Regards,
Sue

HI,
Could you please tell me how include time and/or a wave function in the program setup?
Thanks,
Sue
