I have a pipe looking like this:
and its extruded along the flow direction (z-axis).
When I run simpleFoam (3000 Steps) I get k and epsilon but unrealistic values. Also near the boundaries they look strange. k should go back to 0 and epsilon should rise constantly.
I made a simpler case with a 2D channel and a similar mesh. Here the results look quite good.
Any idea what i am doing wrong?
B.c.s for k and epsilon are zeroGradient (similar to the tutorial cases in simpleFoam / turbFoam) and just for the internal field I gave values. I also tried values on inlet but then I get an error message saying I need zeroGradient at inlet patch.
Thanks for your help
