 April 21, 2008, 19:22 whistling through a pipe #1 cfd-student Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Hi guys I wanna whistle through a pipe and analyse the acoustical behaviour. What sort of boundary conditions i would need to do that. How much pressure do you recommend I should apply at the inlet (any value will do, its just an approximation). Can you please direct me to any reading material on the subject. Thank you

CFX should be able to do such simulations because sound is nothing but pressure fluctuations within fluid. cfd-student

Are you going to go the whole hog and model vortex shedding to generate the waves (like blowing across the top of a milk bottle or playing a recorder) or are you going to do the easy approach and just impose a varying pressure or velocity boundary? This will determine how complex the model must be. The other end of the pipe is pretty easy. It is either closed or open and both are simple to model and mesh. Glenn Horrocks

 April 24, 2008, 01:01 Re: whistling through a pipe #6 Glenn Horrocks Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, Set the inlet boundary as a pressure or velocity boundary where the condition is set by a CEL expression. Then setup a 1D interpolation function using the points from your test file. Glenn Horrocks

I created a profile as was instructed in documentation (more and less) and then fed that into my inlet BC as "total pressure". It worked fine but it did not give me a standing wave I was expecting. Any ideas? Thank you
