Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to I implement a boundary condition which is pressure outlet with a target mass flow rate (name in FLUENT) in OpenFOAM. I want to fix the mass flow rate at an outlet. Im modeling a steady flow with a k-e model in a river and I need to emulate the same conditions that in FLUENT in order to compare the results.

Thanks in advance

Hello,

check if

pressureDirectedInletOutletVelocity

is appropriate for you:

Hi Markus tks for your help.

Im setting a case of a river flow using simpleFOAM, one inlet one outlet, given the water levels. I set for the U file in 0 folder the following boundary conditions:

dimensions [0 1 -1 0 0 0 0];

internalField uniform (0 0 0);

boundaryField
{
//inlet
mass_flow_inlet_4
{
type flowRateInletVelocity;
flowRate 6300;
value uniform (0 0 0);
}

//outlet
pressure_outlet_8
{
type flowRateInletVelocity;
flowRate -6300;
value uniform (0 0 0);
}

//upperWall
wall_6
{
type fixedValue;
value uniform (0 0 0);
}

//lowerWall
river_bed_5
{
type fixedValue;
value uniform (0 0 0);
}

//frontAndBack
ws_profile_7
{
type symmetryPlane;
}
}
I set at the pressure outlet an output discharge, my questions are: is this ok? do i need to set a boundary condition for p ?

thanks in advance,
