Presure results squareBendHi,
I've run the squareBend tutorial with several added calculations. I get the following results: Time = 500 GAMG: Solving for Ux, Initial residual = 0.00114342, Final residual = 0.000104067, No Iterations 4 GAMG: Solving for Uy, Initial residual = 0.000728807, Final residual = 6.92936e-05, No Iterations 3 GAMG: Solving for Uz, Initial residual = 0.0426736, Final residual = 0.00411956, No Iterations 3 GAMG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 0.00292189, Final residual = 0.000205264, No Iterations 3 time step continuity errors : sum local = 1.16781, global = -0.115124, cumulative = -125.995 rho max/min : 0.507862 0.233955 GAMG: Solving for h, Initial residual = 0.00161684, Final residual = 0.000140944, No Iterations 4 ExecutionTime = 179.84 s ClockTime = 181 s Averages of T : inlet = 1000 outlet = 970.329 Averages of p : inlet = 122930 outlet = 110000 Averages of U : inlet = (468.057 0 0) outlet = (-445.63 0.441477 0.762627) MassFlows: inlet = -0.439657 outlet = 0.439453 Going back to basics I ve tried to apply some simple formula p=r*rho*T then mass=rho*U*Area (don't be affraid it is just to get an idea ;-) ). Applying this to outlet gives us rho=0.395 and mout=0.4399 which is very close to the one calculated by openFoam. Doing the same for the inlet is a bit strange rho=0.428 and min=0.501, which is quite far from the calculated one. I will be very glad to understand my mystake, if you could help me thanks a lot.

Please helpSo, going a bit further (which are quite cool by the way) I get the following results:
Time = 500 GAMG: Solving for Ux, Initial residual = 7.85017e-09, Final residual = 7.85017e-09, No Iterations 0 GAMG: Solving for Uy, Initial residual = 6.48846e-09, Final residual = 6.48846e-09, No Iterations 0 GAMG: Solving for Uz, Initial residual = 1.30316e-08, Final residual = 5.26334e-09, No Iterations 1 GAMG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 1.64444e-08, Final residual = 2.91877e-09, No Iterations 1 time step continuity errors : sum local = 1.43382e-05, global = 9.50578e-08, cumulative = -375.781 rho max/min : 0.535971 0.305706 GAMG: Solving for h, Initial residual = 8.82731e-09, Final residual = 8.82731e-09, No Iterations 0 GAMG: Solving for epsilon, Initial residual = 1.00608e-08, Final residual = 2.54175e-09, No Iterations 1 GAMG: Solving for k, Initial residual = 1.66265e-08, Final residual = 3.90612e-09, No Iterations 1 ExecutionTime = 188.73 s ClockTime = 189 s Averages of T : inlet = 1000 outlet = 952.305 Averages of p : inlet = 129606 outlet = 110000 Averages of rho : inlet = 0.450494 outlet = 0.401513 Averages of k : inlet = 739.142 outlet = 1171.94 Averages of epsilon : inlet = 660407 outlet = 4.58901e+06 Averages of U : inlet = (443.962 0 0) outlet = (-432.941 0.798248 -3.89557e-08) Integrals of U : inlet = (1.10991 0 0) outlet = (-1.08235 0.00199562 -9.73893e-11) MassFlows: inlet = -0.434892 outlet = 0.434892 End The rho calculation is equal du mine ==> looks good. The integral of U which is just Ui*Ai gives the same results than mine==> good. So finally I don't understand the calculation of MassFlows inlet!! Of course it is wired to have the inlet mass greater than the outlet mass where is the missing mass:confused:? Which calculation is wrong? The last assumption is that using: inlet { type flowRateInletVelocity; flowRate 0.5; //0.75; value uniform (0 0 0); } the normal vector is not always on the same direction, but in this case the inlet face is very simple! Help will be very appreciate. Thanks, pierre. |
