 October 21, 2008, 08:35 No sharp interface - Discharge in a pipe #1 Matthieu Breysse Guest   Posts: n/a Hello dear users, I am trying to calculate a discharge in a pipe with a fixed pressure and flow. What are the best boundary conditions at the entrance section and the exit section (that is to say at the begining and at the end of the mesh)? When I impose the velocity at the begining and at the end the pressure field don't stabilize and I also get negative pressure. What is the best limit condition to impose on this problem ? Thanks for helping me. Matthieu

For that problem, you may need to check the mesh, or increase the maximum number of iterations, or use a bigger GMRES subspace size, e.g. 15, if GMRES pressure solver is applied. You may also need to use a small initial time step. As you used velocity boundary conditions at both inlet and outlet, there was no reference pressure given in the domain and the pressure result you got would just be gauge pressure. So a negative pressure in that case would be ok. A typical boundary set for pipe flow would be velocity/volume flow rate inlet and fixed pressure outlet (as you mentioned).

This causes pressure convergence problems and unphysical pressure values. Do you get a message from the mentor about a net in/out flow in the domain? Having velocity at one end, e.g., inlet, and pressure at the other should do the trick. Michael

Could you help me to solve no sharp interface problem? I simulated no sharp interface that was pipe flow. But my pressure can't convergence. My inlet boundary is specific velocity and oulet boundary is specific pressure. But oulet domain was occuring backwater taht was wrong. Please help me~ thanks.
