 May 25, 2013, 06:22 Outlet Boundary Condition for the cone of a turbine #1 New Member   Yaser Join Date: May 2013 Location: I. R. Iran, Tehran Posts: 20 Rep Power: 5 hi dear friends i'm modeling a cone (only) for the inlet of the turbine power, with ANSYS FLUENT 12. (the order of part: compressor+combustion chamber+cone+turbine) i have the inlet mass flow rate, static pressure and static temperature, but have no data for the outlet of the cone. if i choose the pressure outlet boundary condition, it ask me the pressure and back flow temperature, but i have no data about them. T=640 C, P=95psi and mass flow rate is 80lb/s, Mach number is about 0.4. please help me. thank you.

Hi, Barzanoni. I have the same question as you.

I am doing my undergraduate thesis now. My modeling is simulating Fixed-Bed heterogeneous reaction. I need to set outlet boundary conditions, because I choose Eulerian Multiphase Model, I must select pressure-outlet for mixture and the gas phase and solid phase.

In tutorial of FLUENT, there is such an example which is about Eulerian Granular Flow and Heat Transfer. It suggest us choose the same temperature as inlet for both phases. But my problem involves reaction, until now, I have no idea about the species setting.

Hope to continue discuss with you.

All the best

It is important to set reasonable values for these downstream scalar values, in case flow reversal occurs at some point during the calculation. (p 12-12, Fluent Tutorial Guide) but, i'm not sure that this view are true for sub- and trasonic or for incomperesible flow????????????

Thank you Ali for your attantion

Hence you can set a Value that makes some sense, like 640°C in your case. This should be ok since you don't assume to have a mass flow over the outlet into your domain in the final state. Greetz Jim
