 October 15, 2009, 03:07 Speed of sound (mesh movement) #1 New Member   Ali Join Date: Oct 2009 Posts: 9 Rep Power: 9 I used bulk modulus approach for defining the density for the model of piston movement.The bulk modulus is as a function of pressure (table below), then I used an expression for calculating densiyt as a function of variable bulk modulus and constant speed of sound (1500 m/s). Table: bulk modulus versus pressure at 68 F degree for water (from fluid mechanics book) Pressure (Psi) Bulk modulus (Psi) .................. ........................ 15 ------------320,000 1,500 -------- 330,000 4,500 ---------348,000 15,000 --------410,000 But, from the slover, i observed that the speed of sound is equal to (578) in the average scale information, i think that is not true. Could someone help please? if it is not the right way for defining the bulk modulus apporach, could someone tell me how to define it??? Thanks in advance.

Or the average scale information is misleading you. Check in detail in CFD-Post what the acoustic velocity is.

The density/pressure function that I used is: c=(K/density)^0.5 C: speed of sound (1500 m/s) in water. I used constant value. K: Bulk modulus, function of pressure. Any suggestions or ideas??

 October 16, 2009, 04:29 #5 New Member   Ali Join Date: Oct 2009 Posts: 9 Rep Power: 9 Hallo, Here is the expression: (BulkModulus(Absolute Pressure))/((1500 [m/s]*1500 [m/s])) BulkModulus: is function of pressure for the table in my post messege 1. I could also send you the definition files, if you have time to have a look, please just give me you email address, Thanks
