Hi All,

I tried to get the fully developed velocity profile in a uniform diameter pipe.
Inlet = Velocity profile
Outlet = Static Pressure = 0
The flow mach number is around 0.35, so I included compressiblity in CFX. when I plotted the profile after 40D, 50D from inlet, I dont get the fully developed profile. The velocity keep on increasing. I think it is due to inclusion of compressiblity(Velocity increases to satisfy continuity equation). I dont think it would make so much difference in velocity in real situation. Am I doing any thing wrong? what you think?

Thanks

How much does it deviate from fully developed flow profile ? Obviously you cannot expect the exact profile since density changes will cause increase or decrease in the velocity.

Thanks for your reply. I could see a 7% increase in average velocity across area/line @70D from Inlet when compared with fully developed profile with out compressibility.

rogbrito is an unknown quantity at this point

Do you have these results from experimental data? Ive got to validate ANSYS CFX, using only forced convection between plates.
