 December 15, 2012, 02:24 Periodic pressure gradient. #1 Member   AHMAD Join Date: Apr 2012 Posts: 54 Rep Power: 0 Hi, I am modelling a 3d periodic flow of air in a tube with wire coil insert (using relizable k-e model), and after 1500 iterations i get a good results of Nusselt number compared to the experimental results, but the friction factor(which is computed this way: f=(dp)/(0.5*density*velocity^2*(length/tube diameter)) is so high compared to the experimental results. Could you give me any advice about this problem. Thank you in advance Last edited by A7A; December 25, 2012 at 04:10.

Which value of dp do you use for calculation of f? the correct value should be the pressure gradient under the periodic boundaries panel, you have to multiply it by the length of your tube.
