 June 30, 2016, 13:10 Outlet pressure boundary for pipe low Re #1 Senior Member   Join Date: Jul 2009 Posts: 260 Rep Power: 17 I'd like to know whether a 0Pa pressure outlet boundary condition is correct for the following: I'm modelling a flow through a sudden contraction: A rectangular box followed by a cylinder. Dimensions of the box are 1.7mx1.7x1.7 and the diameter of the cylinder is 0.165m and length 0.1m. Reynolds' number, based on the inlet flow rate (0.4m^3/s) and outlet diameter is about 1000. My turbulence model is K-omega with low Re correction. y+ <5 Problem: I'm finding flow does not develop properly in the pipe as it's so short. What should I do about the outlet condition?

So the end of the pipe is venting into the atmosphere and I'm interested in looking at how the length of the pipe affects the pressure inside the box. Do you see why I'm stuck with the specific length of pipe. Perhaps I need to model a large box on the end of the pipe to represent the room in which I did the experiment?
