 July 1, 2008, 07:20 why should we use velocity at inlet? #1 rean Guest   Posts: n/a I wonder why we use velocity inlet boundaries to incompressible flows, but mass flow at inlet for compressible flows? Could anybody guide me???

So we specify only the velocity at the inflet of the model, because density is know from (p,T) and so is known the mass flux. That's not true in the case of compressible flow...there we need to specify the mass flux through the inlet boundary, to define the velocity of the fluid and the density entering the model
