hi
I am simulating a channel with mixer in 2D.
the velocity profile of inlet and outlet in channel must be similar and equal
but their pressure are not similar
it is like periodic boundary condition with mass flow rate defined but i don't want that mass flow from outlet come to inlet because they are mixed and my inlet must be unmixed
how can create this condition?
in past i tried to make it with periodic interface constant mass flow rate but my outlet mixed component goes to inlet
now I actived gravity along the channel and I am wating for answer.
thanks regard

Can you explain it a bit better? Why must the inlet and outlet be similar and equal? Do you have multiple of these things lined up?

If the mixture builds up in each row you need to put something in the periodic boundary to handle that. Because your flow is not actually periodic - the mixture builds up each row - so you have to make some of it disappear so it can be periodic.

hi
thank for your attentions
this is my channel
Fluid Flow CFX_001.jpg

and my inlet velocity profile is as follow:
Chart inlet.jpg

and my outlet velocity profile is as follow:
Chart.jpg

I want that in any time step my inlet velocity profile be like outlet
but mixed fluids don't enter to inlet.
in periodic condition mixed fluids enter too.

If you use a periodic pair to join the inlet and outlet then the flow will just evolve to whatever profile the periodic flow generates. You don't impose it, it is an output of the simulation. And the inlet will match the outlet, that is how periodic boundaries work.

And you will not be able to model the mixing you show here as it is not even close to periodic. But it looks close to fully mixed even after one mixer so it is just going to stay mixed all the way through. Or do you need to be more precise about the level of mixing? If so, why?

hi
I am validating my friend's project that has done with SPH and his conditions are this like.
and some other papers have done this work with boltzman method.
I am sure that CFX can do it with a CEL or other things.
Now I am searchig in mesh conection
thanks

Do you know why?
thaanks regards
how can save all of transient results?
where can save variables?
Only I can see final result?

There is another question on the forum at the moment on the results file thing. That thread does not have a solution (yet) but have a look at it for the discussion.
