venturimeter validation problem in accessing data
I am trying to validate the "venturimeter" calculations using Fluent 2D. When i try to define "inlet" as "pressureinlet" boundary condition, it gives some values of mass flow rate at inlet using "report>surface integrals> mass flow rate" and velocity magnitude at inlet using "report>surface integrals> areaweighted average> velocity magnitude" BUT when i try to define same values of either mass flow rate or velocity magnitude at inlet , it down not show same value of "total pressure" at inlet. i use ""report>surface integrals> mass weighted average>total pressure" at inlet. So where is discrepancy, in my determining the correct values or in defining the correct values.
