 May 5, 2000, 05:16 How to Define Pressure Boundary Conditions? #1 Sheenu Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I'm working in PHOENICS. I want to know how to define pressure boundary conditions - at inlet to the flow domain. There's something called Reference pressure to be set in PHOENICS - Should it be Atmospheric pressure? I'd be grateful if anyone can help me.

For example, it is more accurate numerically to get DELTAP=(1.01-1.005) than DELTAP= (100001.01-100001.005). So for pressures near atmospheric, you set 100000 PA to be the reference pressure, and operate in relative pressures. Clearly, the reference can be any convenient value, not just 1 Atm.

For the external flows, you can simply take the farfield pressure. For internal flows, Total pressure can be used.
