 August 30, 2006, 14:20 Reverse outflow in vof,why??? #1 Asghari Guest   Posts: n/a Hello all; I am working on two phase flow modelling with condensation within a tube using the vof model. Scheme of implicit have been used for interface tracking between two phase at the steady state soloution. I use outflow boundary condition type in outlet because i would like calculate drop of pressure within tube and therefor i can't use pressure outlet boundary condition and really outlet boundary has'nt no relation with external media. I use a linear temperature distribution between 345k in inlet to 315k in outlet,but i faced with reverse flow in outflow boundary at duration of soloution process. Can everybody answer me why this happened and how yo remedy this problem ? Thanks in advance .

Do you certify this interpretation for this problem?
