The paper compiles the basic and frequently used boundary conditions in CFD calculations. Regardless of the type of boundary conditions, Dirichlet or Neumman, there are very important differences in the implementation procedure depending on the solved equations as well as on variables which are updated on the boundaries. Boundary conditions in the frame of the control volume method presented here, are adopted for the unstructured grids consisting of arbitrary polyhedral cells. There are no limitations on the employment of boundary conditions regarding mesh type. Some special treatments to improve results and the convergence rate are proposed. The emphasis is on the wall and the pressure boundaries.
