 March 10, 2014, 06:59 Total pressure boundary condition at inlet:how to sustain inlet pressure in cfx #1 New Member   Join Date: Feb 2014 Posts: 17 Rep Power: 5 Hi All, I have selected Total pressure of 1.4MPa at Inlet in ANSYS CFX software. I am modeling a Nitrogen gas flow through convergent-divergent DeLaval Nozzle. I set a areaAve(Pressure) monitor at inlet in solver control monitors. After 3 4 iterations the inlet monitor shows drastic drop of pressure form 1.4e6 Pa to 2e5Pa. How can I imposed a constant total pressure boundary condition at Inlet? Please help...

You are monitoring pressure. The difference is the dynamic head. If your monitor on total pressure it should be your boundary value setting.

Thanks ghorrock,

I have solved the total pressure issue. But another problem occurred with total temperature. When I set the total temperature expression at inlet it is just showing a flat line at 0 value. The total temp at inlet is set to 550 deg C. Please see the attached picture and reply.

Can you suggest that how can I put the pressure monitors on different locations over the length of nozzle. At the moment I put the monitor on inlet and it is showing. I need to check the pressure on throat section which is at 81.2 mm linear distance from inlet. Also one pressure monitor at exit of nozzle which is at 151.2 mm distance form the inlet. How can I set the pressure monitor at these distances ? please suggest.I am CONFUSED...

 March 18, 2014, 05:06 #9 New Member   Join Date: Feb 2014 Posts: 17 Rep Power: 5 This is the problem. I am unable to find from where and how can I set specific location at nozzle length. I tried the option imprint but it is not showing and inactive in my model because my model geometry have frozen bodies. Please suggest?
