A previous paper introduced generalized characteristic boundary conditions for computational aeroacoustics (CAA), especially in focus of far-field nonreflecting conditions. This paper develops strict wall boundary conditions on the basis of the generalized characteristics. True multidimensionality of the characteristic relations is guaranteed in the present work by maintaining entire terms of governing equations, which has been approximated virtually by local one-dimensional inviscid relations during the past two decades. Treating the transverse and viscous terms as source terms in the characteristic relations leads to an exact and simple formalism of wall boundary conditions. Any kind of extrapolation or assumption is not included in the formalism. The proposed inviscid and viscous wall boundary conditions are applied to typical CAA problems for verifying the numerical accuracy in actual implementations. The computations are performed on non-orthogonal grids to exhibit the effect of multidimensionality on the solutions in acoustic fields. It is shown that the present results are in good agreements with analytic estimations and experimental data. This demonstrates the feasibility of the proposed wall boundary conditions for further practical CAA applications.
