i did some a computation! i chose air(idea gas) as fluid, and reference pressure=14atm;energy model----total energy;k-e model;intial condition=automatic

BC:inlet---mass rate;total tempreture=1200K; outlet----reletive pressure=-600000Pa;

it never congence,but when i turn outlet's reletive pressure to 0Pa,it congence,it that 14atm have some problem?if not,where can i modify them?

how this could happen,and what can i do? thanks in advance!!!

Re: congence???
Do you mean convergence?

A negative pressure is not very well chosen because there is no negative pressure in the universe. Under domain you can set the reference pressure to 0 atm and then calculate or set every pressure as it is in real.

Re: congence???
but 14atm-600000Pa=800000Pa,it's a positive value!

if i set 0 for reference pressure,then the outlet's pressure will really become negative value (0--600000Pa=-600000Pa)

Re: congence???
Then set the outlet to 8 atm. Where is the problem?

Re: congence???
haha,i found it!the inlet is subsonic,but outlet is supersonic,i set them wrong!

so this flow from subsonic area into supersonic area,is some suggestions i can concern?

thanks all of u:)

Re: congence???
i am wrong again!it's still subsonic!

the problem still on!!!

Re: congence???
YOu can try to change the outlet to an opening. This is more stable then a subsonic outlet.

Re: congence???
i try!but it seems not that problem there!

seems that outlet's relative pressure -600000,

IN CFX,can i put negative value like -600000 there?

Re: congence???
i dont see the benefit in doing this. why do you do this? why not 0atm and 8 atm?

Re: congence???
0atm and 8atm can't congence either!

i try once! i don't know why?

how long can i solve this problem,help me!

Re: congence???
could anyone help me!

this is my e-mail!i can send this to u!

thanks a lot!
