Default Inviscid flow in a Laval nozzle
Posts: n/a
Hi, I'm trying to simulate an inviscid subsonic flow in a Laval nozzle, I aspect to have a 100% pressure recovery at the end of the divergent since the inlet area is equal to the outlet one. Still I am getting a pressure loss (actually about 2% of the pressure drop in the throat). I am using a segregated pressure based solver. Does anybody know how to fix it?

Grid sensitivity checks.

Convergence sensitivity checks.
