 April 28, 2004, 07:16 sos£¡£¡mass flow inlet! #1 danel Guest   Posts: n/a hi,every one,I am using fluent simulations a solid rocket motor interial flow,and use the mass flow inlet bc.but I meet some problems.in my case,the total pessure is 4.4mpa,total temperature is 3500k,the throat is 0.0105629m2,from this we can calculate the mass flow rate is 26.7kg/s.(k=1.25 and molecular weight is 22).but when i set the mass flow rate as this ,the calculation of total pressure is 5.3mpa not the 4.4mpa,why?please help me!

If you want more accuracy your mesh must contain smaller cells and the computation time will be longer. I read some documentation in it a postgraduated man wrote that, based on his experience, the real and simulated things can differ 6-10% with the finest meshes.

Also are you using an operating pressure? Is this the pressure you are getting once you initialize the case and view the total pressure profile at the inlet?
