about compresive phase
when I model the multiphase of water and air,as I need to set the pressure at the inlet,such error come out:
Notice This is a multiphase simulation with a compressible phase. Total pressure (used for postprocessing or if total pressure is specified at a boundary) is calculated assuming all phases are incompressible. What should I do to deal with it,if I insist to set the pressure of inlet ?any suggestion will be appreciated. 
Re: about compresive phase
Its unlikely that you should be setting the gaseous phase as compresible in the first place.

How do you figure that Joe?

Re: about compresive phase
A typical tank sloshing flow is hardly going to result in signifciant compression effects in the gaeous phase ...

Re: about compresive phase
...if you are simulating tank sloshing. James said nothing of the sort.

Re: about compresive phase
To be precise, he didnt bother to specify his problem at all. An all to common occurance here. Hence my question ...

Re: about compresive phase
Correction, he did mention it was a tank sloshing problem: http://www.cfdonline.com/Forum/cfx.cgi?read=16846
I'll posed questions spread over multiple posts ... and people wonder why they dont get proper answers to their questions. 
Re: about compresive phase
Hi,Joe and Robin,
my model is compressible fluid as it is vacuum in the domain and with pressure at the inlet boundry condition. 
Re: about compresive phase
Hi James,
All the message is doing is warning you that the postprocessed value of Total Pressure is not calculated in the same manner as it would normally be for a compressible fluid. Just keep this in mind if you are interested in Total Pressure. Now, having a vacuum may present other problems. You can't actually specify zero absolute pressure or the code will blow. If you have water coming into the domain, a low pressure (say 0.1 atmosphere) will probably do. Let us know how it works out. Regards, Robin 
Re: about compresive phase
Hi,Robin In fact I simulate this to show the configuration of the flow in the counter Gravity filling.At first,I set the inlet using constant velocity of water.In order to close the reality,then the pressure of inlet will be included.The pressure is a constant ,but maybe because of the compressive fluid in the domain,it always goes wrong. I also set the inlet pressure as 10kpa or 30kpa,but it doesn't work ,either.Expect for your suggestion.Thanks.

Re: about compresive phase
I try to simulate my model by using the degassing mdel,set the air to dispersed fluid,and set the outlet the degssing boundry,and use the free surface to simulate it.By doing this air can flow out the doman,not the water,which is I expected.Is it feasible? It converges well,but in the post I cannot get the isoface of the volume fraction,for example,water volume fraction 0.5 .The pressure works well however.can you give me some help?My setting is : LIBRARY:
