Default How to Define Pressure Boundary Conditions?

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.

I'm not specifically sure about Phoenix, but if it is like other CFD codes, the reference pressure is simply used to offset all the pressures to preserve precision in pressure gradients. 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.

I think the Reference pressure is for Non-dimension the flowfield, basicly, it is not boundary condition. For the external flows, you can simply take the farfield pressure. For internal flows, Total pressure can be used.
