 June 25, 2003, 18:49 why did the message always come out? #1 Lee Guest   Posts: n/a When I run a roundpipe model(which is a semi-circe,at one end of the pipe the bounday type is inlet,the other end is outlet,and there is a symmetry boundary),I set the outlet boundary as the prescribed flow split(fs=1),but the information file always shows one warning message: *** WARNING #001 *** FLUID INFLOW DETECTED AT SOME OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES WHERE MASS FLUXES ARE FORCED TO ZERO. IF THIS CONDITION PERSISTS, YOUR RESULTS MIGHT BE WRONG THE OUTFLOW BOUNDARY MIGHT NOT BE WELL SPECIFIED OR THE GRID MIGHT BE TOO COARSE NEAR THE OUTFLOW BOUNDARY but I think I the meshs created are enough fine,so what is the reason to cause this warning message? Thank you very much for your help! Best Regards, Lee

Second,I just want to know why the warning message always comes out and what is the proble reason to cause the problem. I think if the model simply like this one can't be modeled by the inlet and outlet boundary type(note,the inlet flow velocity is 50+20*sin(time),and diameter is 38 milimeters),how can the star-cd model the other complex models? So I really want to know where the problem is. Thanks a lot for who can help me out this problem! lee
