 May 17, 2002, 09:34 CFX 5.5 Boundary condition #1 Veebs Guest   Posts: n/a Dear CFX 5.5 Users, I Have a axisymmetric model with one inlet and 4 outlets. It is modelled in rotating frame of reference. Inlet I have with Total pressure. Outlet 1 with mass and all other outlets with static pressure. One of the outlet is having radius varying from r1 to r2(outlet perpendicular to axis). It is specified with the average static pressure with averaged above specified radius option (top tip I have given as radius for average). But even after 1000 + iterations, when we measure the pressure it shows a pressure different from the specified pressure. But just few cells inside pressure field is OK. Can you suggest what could be the reason Thanks for your time Veebs

 May 18, 2002, 01:40 Re: CFX 5.5 Boundary condition #3 Veebs Guest   Posts: n/a Robin, Solution is more or less converged.(Both residual and global imbalance are OK) I did look into area averaged value. But mass averaged value is also totally different from the specified average static pressure Thanks Veera

 May 18, 2002, 11:39 Re: CFX 5.5 Boundary condition #4 Robin Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Veebs, The solver will average the pressure by area, not mass. Check the area average. What was your convergence criteria? Robin

 May 19, 2002, 03:28 Re: CFX 5.5 Boundary condition #5 Veebs Guest   Posts: n/a Dear Robin, I do agree with you. It is area averaged pressure only. But the computed value is totally different from what is specified. When I have 3 outlets specified with average static pressure Only one satisfies the boundary condition. Other two outlets show computed value totally different from specified pressure. Can you suggest why ? Thanks for your time Veera
