I'm using rhoCentralFoam for the gas flow in microchannels. I set the pressure value at the outlet, but the results show that it is not sat. In fact, the last two cells in the channel have an odd behavior. As can be seen in the figure, the pressure increases in these two cells. This figure shows the pressure distribution on the channel centerline with the B.C. : Pi=150kPa and Po=50kPa.
Does anybody know what is wrong with the test case?
