Dear all,

I am giving pressure at inlet & velocity at outlet boundary conditions.
When i see the reports the results i get for total pressure(area weighted average) are:
at inlet 52.17 Pa
at outlet -1812 Pa

But when i see in the contour plot the values it is showing like from 87 Pa to -1812 Pa (major area) &-3120 Pa(At some small arears).

Forget about the outlet pressure because it is showing correctly that most of the arears with -1812 Pa.

But at inlet i am giving the inlet pressure as 52.17 Pa so,
why it is showing 87 Pa at the inlet areas.

Thanks & Regards,

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
what kind of contour plot are you using for your comparison (static?, total?)
I would use velocity inlet and pressure outlet as BC
