 September 10, 2012, 14:25 high pressure boundary condition #1 New Member   Join Date: Apr 2012 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 5 Hello, im currently working on simulating some channels in an hydralic pump, but I got some problems with the boundary conditions due the high pressure. The problem consist of a 90 degree bending pipe, I've been trying to use a normal velocity around 20m/s for the inlet boundary condition and for the outlet i've been trying diffrent kind of pressure conditions, with 'relative pressure' equal set to 220 bar. The domains referense pressure is set to 1 atm. the reasons of my problem could be that I use the standard water model instead of oil? and another strange thing is that the models works fine every time i run it with relative pressure equal to 0... The thing im investigating is the pressure loss in the channel for a flow of 20m/s and a exiting pressure of 220bar

Is the flow incompressible? Is the exit the only place the pressure is set at? If this is the only place the pressure is set then you would be better off to use a boundary condition pressure of 0 bar, and a reference pressure of 220bar. This will reduce round off errors.
