 February 14, 2000, 14:31 Boundary Condition #1 KIAN Guest   Posts: n/a What boundary should I be using for a cleanroom if my inlet and outlet velocity are at 0.4m/s. But the inlet and outlet dimensions or area are different.

 February 14, 2000, 15:10 Re: Boundary Condition #2 Peter Anderson Guest   Posts: n/a Are you saying that you don't have mass-conservation in your cleanroom? Having the same inlet and outlet velocities but different areas implies this unphysical conclusion.

 February 16, 2000, 06:49 Re: Boundary Condition #3 KIAN Guest   Posts: n/a If I have o.4m/s velocity as inlet what boundary condition should I be using. I mean the bondaries condition for the inlet and outlet for the cleanroom having different area for the inlet & outlet.

 February 16, 2000, 08:19 Re: Boundary Condition #4 Jonas Larsson Guest   Posts: n/a I'd use a velocity inlet and a pressure outlet. Set the outlet pressure to the ambient atmospheric pressure. When you have a solution you should check that you have mass conservation, ie that the mass-flux in equals the mass-flux out.

 February 16, 2000, 18:16 Re: Boundaries Condition #5 KIAN Guest   Posts: n/a What about the operating condition, do I have to set anything there?? And for the inlet and outlet temperature, do I remain it as default at 300k??

 February 17, 2000, 03:32 Re: Boundaries Condition #6 Jonas Larsson Guest   Posts: n/a The operating condition is just a "base pressure". All pressures you give as boundary conditions are relative to this operating pressure. If you set the operating pressure to atmospheric pressure then you should set outlet gauge pressure to zero in order to obtain atmospheric pressure at the outlet. Set inlet temperature to whatever you think it is. 300K sounds resonable. Outlet temperature will not make much difference. Set it to 300K also.
