Development and validation of Navier–Stokes characteristic boundary conditions applied to turbomachinery simulations using the lattice Boltzmann method
This article reports a procedure to implement as well as to validate non-reflecting boundary conditions applied for turbomachinery simulations, using Navier-Stokes characteristic boundary conditions in a compressible lattice Boltzmann solver. The implementation of both an inlet condition imposing total pressure, total temperature, and flow angles, as well as an outlet condition imposing a static pressure profile that allows the simulation to reach a simplified radial equilibrium, is described within the context of a lattice Boltzmann approach. The treatment at the boundaries relies on the characteristic methodology to derive conditions which are non-reflecting in terms of acoustics and is also compatible with turbulence injection at the inlet. These properties are evaluated on test cases of increasing complexity, ranging from a simple 2D periodic domain to an S-duct stage with turbulence injection.
