What happen with the scale of pressure?

i have problem with the scale of static pressure of a flow.
it is show me big negative values of pressures. For example: In a pipe i put inlet pressure 40000Pa(approximately 0.4 atm) and outlet pressure 200000Pa(approximately 2 atm) and fluent show me values of pressure until 700000Pa (approximately 7 atm). How can it be occured this? If we have inlet pressure 0.4 atm then the minimum value can take the fluid is 0 atm.

Hi,
The Inlet pressure you are giving is Static or Total Pressure ? is the same case for Outlet condition ? Did you check the Total/Static/ Dynamic pressure values after getting the solution ? you provided Pinlet = 0.4 atm, Poulet = 2 atm. in that case direction of flow will be completly reverse. In that Pinlet(0.4 atm is Total pressure) will be decomposed into two component: Static Pressure & Dynamic Pressure. Please check those values. Are they give 0.4 atm by summing up Static & Dynamic pressure in the solution. I guess that will be helpfull, please fell free to ask if I can you help you in better way

hi devesh.
In the box of Pressure inlet of Boundary contitions there are two options: "Gauge total pressure" and "Initial gauge prssure". I use the second option for static inlet pressure. This is right? Still, i want to ask you, why is there the "operation condition". if i put a value of prssure in the operation condition, this value where will apply? I don't unstarstand where useful this.

Hi Kostas, Operating Pressure is Standard Pressure(i.e. 1 atm by default). Now whatever pressure you put, that is Gauge pressure. You put 0.4 atm in Gauge Total Pressure (total pressure= static pressure + dynamic pressure).
Fluent works on Absolute Pressure(i.e. Operating pressure + gauge pressure). If you want to know more about Pressure , Please go through FLuent User Guide, that will help you alot. By chance if u want to run your analysis, you put 0.4 atm in Gauge total Pressure. "Initial gauge Pressure" is for initial guessing & is used in case of Compressible Flow. best of luck......

Ok. i understand!
In the box of operating condition there are X: and Y:. What mean that? That on this point we will have the operation condition? If define aq point which find out of geometry what mean?

Hi, I think you are talking about Reference Pressure Location !....If you have been scaled your geometry & if this is not a very complex flow condition then leave it as default value of Zero.
If I am correct to understand your problem, then it is the location from where solver consider it as a reference point to adjust the Numerical Pressure with respect to surrounding cell centre. If I am misleading something, pls correct me.
