 November 15, 2012, 14:12 inicial condition! #1 Member   David L Join Date: May 2012 Posts: 43 Rep Power: 5 hi guys! I have a geometry with a outlet and two inlets, I would like to impose a different pressure for each inlet, I am using as intel (velocity inlet) therefore I have the same pressure for both. someone could tell me the way to have diferente pressures for my inlets.

You will not have the same pressure for both inlets, even when you're using a velocity inlet. EXCEPT your physics will result in the same pressure drop in both flow paths of your geometry. This is because the pressure drop depends on your geometry and flow velocities. So let's assume, you have a Y pipe. You'll have different pressure drops in both legs of the Y when you have different velocities. Since the outlet pressure is the same (no matter what pressure level it is), this results in different inlet pressures. __________________ We do three types of jobs here: GOOD, FAST AND CHEAP You may choose any two!

That is the correct way to impose a pressure inlet boundary condition (if that is indeed what you are trying to do).

supersonic Static Pressure is the absolute static pressure
total pressure is the stagnation pressure
total pressure is the stagnation temperature

You should use the isentropic relations to relate the static pressure to total pressure and total temperature (Mach number pops in here).

the stagnation inlet can give rise to supersonic flow at the inlet so be careful.
