Hi~ i'm trying to simulate a vacuum chamber which has only outlet on fluent.
Chamber pressure drops to about to 1 torr at atmospheric pressure by dry pump.
I design only the chamber and outlet line(small pipe shape), no dry pump module.

I want to see the time for pressure drop.

I set the pressure-outlet boundary condition with specific pressure, then chamber average pressure going to same with pressure-outlet pressure at the first time step even i set the small time step.

Which outlet boundary condition is suitable for this simulation???

You should manually initialize the domain with atmospheric pressure before run. Don't use hybrid initialisation.

That's one heck of a pump you have. Put the pump curve in, it does not just instantly pull perfect vacuum at the pump inlet.
Make sure you have continuum flow, not molecular flow. CFD can't model 0 absolute pressure. Check your Knudsen number, at some absolute pressure you won't have continuum pressure anymore. and you CD is invalid, or will blow up.
