Skordos Boundary Conditions

Dear all,

Has anyone ever had a successful application of the Skordos boundaries (InterpBoundary) in Palabos on a more complex geometry? Can one in principle replace the localBoundary with Interp and expect to get similar results?

I tried replacing the local boundary with InterpBoundary in the aneurysm_bounceback.cpp file but I get ‘nan’ value for the average energy. I am less familiar with the Skordos boundaries. Any hint would be appreciated.


Hi Hanieh,

the Skordos Boundary Condition can only be used for straight walls and not in complex geometries like the aneurysm case.


Thanks Marc for your reply.

Is this in general or just they way it is implemented in Palabos?


From what I know, this is a general restriction.
