We have used that in the past. Seems to work fine. Make sure to leave enough space between sphere and velocity boundaries, so they don't influence your results.

you can try to use LB boundaries with velocity boundary conditions but I have not tested this myself.

My problem is that, for what I need to do, I need to change the parameters so that I see vortices behind the sphere (increasing Reynolds number). Due to the periodic boundary conditions on the open ends of the tube, the “tail” that is created behind the sphere re-enters the simulation box from the other side and thus perturbing my system in an unwanted way.
