 April 19, 2008, 03:59 mean velocity change from inlet to outlet #1 ro Guest   Posts: n/a When I simulate the flow in a channel and after solution is converged .When I calculate the mean velocity by surface integrals the mean velocity is found 1-differ from the inputed value at the velocity inlet B.C and 2-differ from the mean velocity at the outlet of the channel which have pressure outlet B.C In fact as I know must be the mean velocity is equal from inelt to outlet .So why this happened ?please how know the answer to help me Thanks alot
