Hello dear friends,

I design a Francis Turbine in ANSYS. I used Bladegen. In CFX Solution Section, I see '' A wall has been placed at portion(s) of an OUTLET boundary condition (at 35.7% of the faces, 19.9% of the area) to prevent fluid from flowing into the domain.''

I did some searches and found a solution which is usage of opening type boundary condition in this forum and saw how to make opening boundary condition. I defined Total pressure for flow entering the opening and Static pressure for flow exiting the opening in setup section. But it did not solve and I don't still understand that how can I define my flow rate when I define this. There is no option to define flow rate at the opening boundary condition.

I calculated that the efficiency is approximately %98. How can I prevent the solution putting the wall there? Can the wall affect my results so much?

The "A wall has been placed..." message is a FAQ:

First of all, note it is a warning, not an error. You may be accurate enough despite the warning. But to eliminate the problem (and it usually is a problem) you should move the outlet to somewhere no back flow exists. This usually means moving the outlet boundary further downstream.
