CEL problem
Hello my dear collegues.
I have been working on an oil and gas separator, but I have not had any result of my CFX.
I do no know where are my mistakes here I let you some information about it:
Boundaries conditions
Inlet: mass flow rate of each phase
Multiphase model: mixture
upper outlet: opening
bottom outle: opening

The other problem is that I defined some CEL, at the outlet I defined: massflow()@outlet. but it gave a straight line in the output file..

It seems that the program is not computing any flow mass at taht opening..

You have not described what you are modelling. What type of openings aer you using for the outlets? Is your model converged? What straight line are you getting for the mass flow results?

Yes I did, I am modeling a vertical oil - gas separator.
The openings are " open pressure for entreinment"
The line is a straight line which indicates 0 , it seems that the mass flow is zero, it is imposible
