Hi all,
I am a new autodesk CFD user. and I want to analyze an air tunnel and my goal is to determine the amount of air out let volume. how i have to defined the boundaries?
mu boundary setup now is:
inlet Volume rate is 900 Cubic meter per hour.
out let pressure 0
all the other wall are set to slip.
But I received almost the same amount in outlet, but in a practical test I have had an almost 50% reduction in air flow.
what would be my mistake or unassign boundary?
Tanks for your help.

In reality you have less flow exiting than you do entering?
This could only really be true with a high speed compressible study and only with volumetric flow rate, otherwise you really must have the same volume of flow entering and exiting.

If the water is coming out out of the tip too fast like a tap, then you can increase the pipe size, it wont slow down the volume at all, but itll make it come out in a better flow rate not messing up the media.

flow reduction, volume flow rate
