Hi guys
I am running a DNS code in a pipe. For laminar flow I have a problem. as you see in 2d plot of radial velocity at inlet, there are some strange number of velocity. it should be zero but it is not. I will appreciate any help.

are you solving incompressible flows? did you check the divergencefree constraint in each cell? Are you sure of the numerical stability contraints? From the figure it seems that the radial velocity accounts for the wall and the incipient boundary layer in a very low Re flow with plug velocity inlet, but I may be wrog ...

I am so grateful for your answer. the Re=60 based on friction velocity. number of mesh is: r=30 theta=16, z=96. Yes this is for incompressible flow. the divergence is Ok. I am using the profile ((Re/4.)*(1. 4.*(rp(i))**2.)) for inlet which is analytitical solution. I put radial and tangential velocity 0 at z=0 .

After you have to refine the grid and see what happens, usually the small value in the normaltowall velocity component can be controlled. See also your threshold value in the pressure solver, can be to high. After that, you can check further by changing the inflow/outflow condition in a periodic condition, this way you can check the inner solution.

how strange the velocity is? Can you email me and we can discuss furtherly.
