Dear all,
Hi, I am simulating flow in a flume, the inlet boundary is velocity boundary, however every time I begin the simulation, the water level will increase and extend to the outlet boundary and never descend. For example, the fluid elevation I define at the inlet and outlet boundary is 50cm, but after the flow becoming steady the water level keeps 55cm and never change. How can I solve this problem?
1.At the outlet boundary, I have tried continuative, pressure and outflow boundary.
2.I have tried to increase the velocity slowly at the inlet boundary but it doesn't work.
3.I have put an obstacle at the top of the flume to avoid water rising but the simulation will exit anormally.
So who can figure out why?

Thank you, maybe I should give the pressure of air, I will try it soon.

It doesn't work, the level of the water still rises and doesn't dscend.
I will show two pitures below.

It was happening to me also and I discover that the flow in given was bigger than flow out, then the volume of water will increase for sure… you could check it.


Another problem could be the delta time. When there is instabilities in the delta time or delta x the information of the volume flow will be lost and the volume so... I mean check the Courant-Friedrichs-Lewy condition

It was happening to me and i change the height of mesh with height free surface. and i will change the velocity inlet fluid elevation constant and outflow -pressure and fluid elevation constant. this work similar the ansys cfx.
and i dont know this is wright or wrong?

Hi, Pyxbird

The case that you simulated is open channel flow. In flow-3d, the velocity is uniform distribution in velocity inlet boundary, but the velocity profile is parabolic distribution in channel if the flow is fully developed. Hence, they need to increase the flow area to maintain the same flow rate. There is why your result shows higher water level.

I do the outlet as outflow and its work, i simulated without obstacle
