Isn't this the natural boundary condition, assuming you integrated by parts on the pressure term? In that case I don't think you get any extra terms.

If anyone can point out how to > properly implement this BC, I'd be most appreciative :) For the new Fu term, you'll need a corresponding Jacobian term. Try: if (boundary_id == outflow_id) Kup(i,j) = JxW_side[qp] * psi_side[j][qp] * phi_side[i][qp];  Roy

I'd like to implement the following boundary condition for the outflow of a channel: du/dn  n*p = 0, where n is the outward normal and p is the pressure. It seems to me that this BC would result in an extra boundary term $\int_{\partial\Omega} n p \ds$ being added to the momentum equations? In my case the outward normal on the outflow boundary is n = (1,0). I tried to implement this BC using the following code in side_constraint: if (boundary_id == outflow_id) Fu(i) = JxW_side[qp] * p * phi_side[i][qp]; if (boundary_id != outflow_id) Fv(i) += JxW_side[qp] * penalty * (v  v_value) * phi_side[i][qp]; if (boundary_id != outflow_id) Kuu(i,j) += JxW_side[qp] * penalty * phi_side[i][qp] * phi_side[j][qp]; if (boundary_id != outflow_id) Kvv(i,j) += JxW_side[qp] * penalty * phi_side[i][qp] * phi_side[j][qp]; where p = side_value(p_var, qp), plus there are other BCs not shown here for inflow and noslip. This doesn't appear to work; the Newton convergence fails with these BCs. If anyone can point out how to properly implement this BC, I'd be most appreciative :) Cheers, David

Speak of the devil. I will try to attend this talk next month, though it looks like it will focus on more exotic FE spaces...

I didn't investigate the issue further, unfortunately. You can try it out yourself with a pyramid of known volume... Either the geometric volume formula we have is wrong or there is a problem with the quadrature rule or basis functions. If you take a look at the pyramid's basis functions, you will notice they are rational functions, not polynomials. John
