    associated with the velocity fields within the domain will have little effect If the coefficient is very large by contrast such variations will be effective therefore the magnitude and even the sign of the flow rate will be hard to determine in advance Typically the inflow to a domain is represented by a low coefficient pressure boundary condition whereas an outflow is represented by a high coefficient one but variants are numerous The mass flow source added to the continuity equation is Cp Vp pP where Cp and Vp are the coefficient and value for pressure ie the C and V of the COVAL for P1 The value of the pressure at the nodal point P is denoted by pP e Convective and diffusive sources for j When mass enters a cell from outside the flow domain but not when it leaves the values of all the dependent variables pertaining to the inflowing fluid need to be prescribed The correct effect is achieved by specifying these values as the V s in the correspondi COVAL specification The C s represent the coefficients of the diffu fluxes from the boundary to the nodes in the PATCH The mass flow ra are specified through the pressure boundary condition as explained a The convective and diffusive fluxes of j represented by the above mentioned settings are given by the following expressions for the corresponding source of j Cp Vp pP Vj jP Cj Vj jP for Vp pP ie inflow and Cj Vj jP for Vp pP ie outflow The omission of the convective term for outflow is an expression of the upwind principle and it is analogous to the practice used for the interior coefficient aE see equations 2 4 7 and 2 4 8 To summarize the task is to specify Cp and Vp for pressure P1 and to specify Cj and Vj for the variable j In this way the convective and diffusive fluxes at boundary surfaces are specified Very often the diffusive contribution is zero ie Cj 0 which may also be represented in COVAL by substitution of the word ONLYMS for only mass transfer in its third argument Further information on boundary condition implementation is provided under the COVAL entry in this encylopaedia The entries for PATCH COVAL and SOURCE should be inspected for further information with special attention to the significance which attaches to the use of the arguments FIXVAL FIXFLU ONLYMS FIXP OPPVAL and SAME The keyword commands INLET OUTLET WALL and VALUE can also be used to set the commonly used boundary conditions which correspond to their names f Improved specification of boundary conditions in general menu In Cartesian and cylindrical polar coordinates the location of boundary features inlets outlets blockages etc can now be linked to named objects defined during the grid generation procedure This obviates the need to enter the coordinates twice once when defining the grid and again when specifying boundary conditions as was the case in previous versions If an object
