increasement in a vertical pipe
I've a vertical pipe with pressure_inlet on the bottom and pressure_outlet on the other side. Now, I wanna see how much is the increasement of the fluid in the pipe against gravity and friction. Therefore I've assigned gauge total pressure the same value as gauge pressure,set Pressure_outlet to 0, fluid is incompressible. In the operating_condition panel I have activated gravity. My problem is that the flow doesn't stop. I get the same value for x-velocity in interior following a flow-thread. The increasement shall stop at position where is reached x-momentum equilibrium. Can somebody help me?
