 October 31, 2000, 20:18 Converging-Diverging part #1 Jungyoon hahm Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all, I try to analsys fluid film between flat plate and concave plate(so it has converging and diverging part) But the result says diverging part have negative pressure. It's somewhat stange to me I want to change this to seperation or other pressure value. How can I do? Thanks, all

If this is not your problem please explain more detailed you geometry, the system (incompressible fluid properties, lam or turb. case etc.). Regards Phil

It's incompressible and laminar flow. There is inlet and outlet.(have different pressure) The lower plate is flat as many simple problem. But the upper plate has geometry like parablic and it's center is located above the upper plate(so that is concave and has converging diverging part consecutively). There is pressure to support this fluid film. Due to this goemetry have converging and diverging part consecutively, there is negative pressure at the diverging part. So I want to find analysis method. One of this may be considering the seperation of the fluid film. Then how can I change the pressure value into the fluent?(I want to constrain the pressure will be same as separation condition)

This is caused by fluctuating values for each mean flow property. However you can simulate it assuming a steady state. Even if this is not right you get a result which is, if converged, a result of an unsteady flow. Regards Phil
