 January 22, 2012, 06:18 Radial turbine problem #1 New Member     Giuseppe DiB Join Date: May 2010 Posts: 7 Rep Power: 8 Hi, i'm new in this matter and so i've some questions. I'm studing a radial turbine that expands a compressible fluid. Though the pressure at discharge of turbine is less than inlet, both the velocity magnitude and relative velocity magnitude on the outlet are bigger than inlet. Is it possible?I analyze its with fluent. Thank you so much.

Ensure that solution is full converged and settings (e.g. rotation direction) are OK
