 May 2, 2002, 05:48 Changing velocity in CFX5 #1 Dimitris Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Hi everyone I have a peculiar problem. The velocity inside the domain increases over 60% compared to the inlet velocity and it's not because of a smaller domain or things "in the way" inside the domain that causes is. Any ideas why I have this phenomena?

 May 2, 2002, 09:45 Re: Changing velocity in CFX5 #2 cfd guy Guest   Posts: n/a Did you take a look at your pressure field? If you have some high gradients of pressure in certain regions you can expect some local increases of velocity. cfd guy

 May 2, 2002, 09:49 Re: Changing velocity in CFX5 #3 Dimitris Guest   Posts: n/a I have a reference pressure of 20 bar and an static pressure of 0 at the exit...but already after a few centimeters into the domain the velocity increases drastically. I'm confident that it hasn't anything to do with the domain getting smaller or something.....I've even put symmetry planes all around and still have the same behaviour....I can't understand....can't find anything wrong with the geometry as well...

 May 2, 2002, 15:54 Re: Changing velocity in CFX5 #4 steve Guest   Posts: n/a That's a pretty large pressure gradient (depending on the domain length); I would expect a large acceleration of the flow. Are you sure you want to set your pressure at 20 bar and not 20 Pa. And are you sure you want to set the static pressure of 0 at the outlet rather than specifying a relative pressure. Steve

 May 2, 2002, 16:54 Re: Changing velocity in CFX5 #5 Dimitris Guest   Posts: n/a Well...I'm simulating the flow in a quenching chamber and a pressure of 20 bar is very normal considering the circumstances... When I used CFX4 I modeled in the same way but without this strange acceleration after the inlet...

 May 2, 2002, 17:20 Re: Changing velocity in CFX5 #6 steve Guest   Posts: n/a With zero static pressure at the outlet?

 May 2, 2002, 18:48 Re: Changing velocity in CFX5 #7 Dimitris Guest   Posts: n/a Yes....that's the way I've always done...how would you model a rectangular domain with an inlet velocity, a reference pressure inside the domain and an outlet? What would you put on the outlet instead of 0 static pressure?

 May 2, 2002, 19:05 Re: Changing velocity in CFX5 #8 steve Guest   Posts: n/a So is that 0 relative pressure rather than an absolute pressure?

 May 5, 2002, 04:20 Re: Changing velocity in CFX5 #9 Astrid Guest   Posts: n/a Dimitris, some questions: - What kind of BC's do you have on your inlet? - Is it an inlet or an opening? - Does your temperature drop? - Do you have a uniform inlet profile and a developed velocity profile downstream (than it would be really simple)?

 May 6, 2002, 06:56 Re: Changing velocity in CFX5 #11 Astrid Guest   Posts: n/a - It could have been an opening. - What did you specify on the inlet? Normal velocity? - Make a plane in Post that crosses the inlet. Is there sometihing peculiar on pressure and temperature? - Have you checked the manual on the BC's you can specify on an inlet?

 May 6, 2002, 07:16 Re: Changing velocity in CFX5 #12 Dimitris Guest   Posts: n/a I'm doing it the exactly same way as I've been doing with my other simulations but it doesn't want to work. I have no idea of what to do. Perhaps I can e-mail you my .db and .def file and you can take a look at it if you have time and want to...

 May 17, 2002, 02:21 Re: Changing velocity in CFX5 #13 Astrid Guest   Posts: n/a Dimitris, Sorry, I lost your e-mail but have the files attached. So, I used your original def-file, while solving ALL equations and found nothing strange. I obtained a decent velocity and temperature field. I remember from the e-mail that you made some variations on this def-file. Can you elaborate on these variations? Did you use the obtained velocity field with different temperatures (thus, FLUIDS = FALSE and TKE AND EPS = FALSE) ? Astrid
