Default sinsoudial time varying BC

Hi guys

I am simulating a plane duct flow with time varying total pressure BC at the inlet and outlet is sealed. I have specified an equation at the inlet for this BC.

I am getting a message from solver that "a wall has been placed at the inlet". If I change my inlet BC to opening how would that affect my solution? I am running laminar flow. How else can i resolve the issue? Thank you

Hi,

Read the documentation about the difference between outlets, inlets and openings. In short inlets and outlets only flow in one direction and place "walls" at the boundary in the case of reverse flow. An opening allows forward or reverse flow.

Thank you Glenn but how the forward/reverse flow can affect the outcome. Any ideas? What if I use non-reflecting BC at the inlet?

semi-open cavity! I am using following expression at the inlet y=A*sin(omega*t). Inlet is opening, outlet is sealed, side walls are symmetry and upper and lower sides are wall. I have randomily chosen amplitude, omega is in radians per second and time is my time step. I am not getting a sine wave the way I should do. What could be wrong?? Thank you for your help Rogerio and others.
