 March 16, 2007, 04:19 velocities and pressure #1 Palani Velladurai Guest   Posts: n/a Hi guys! I got confused with some basic flow quantities...... consider a channel flow , and my inlet velocity is some 30 m/s for a 2 m length channel.....and I set my outlet as a pressure outlet..In this case setting the values of pressure at te outlet from 0- 100000 Pascal..but I found no change i my velocities....That means ..there is nothing to be related between inlet velo and out.Pressure... or ????? reply me

For the two solutions, check the pressure obtained at the inlet. They must be different. The pressure gradient however must be the same (difference between pressures at the inlet and outlet). This mean that the pressure at the inlet adjusts itself to maintain the same flow rate in both cases!
