I am trying to simulate an example for a flow around a circle based on a stratified circumstance which also contain the air in a planar. If I use a pressure outlet for the 'out', there are reversed flow finding in the outlet even I had tried to use an udf for the pressure.
Whats more, if I use an outflow for the 'out', no reversed flow would be found but the water near the 'out' seems to rise or damp maybe.
I want to know there is a way to avoid such kinds of 'mistakes' because no matter which kind of 'mistake' do effect the flow field of the simulation.

How close is your outlet to the cylinder? Can you post some pictures of the setup and solution (preferably with a contour map and velocity vectors shown). Finally, what does your mesh look like?

The first picture is the wave-height for the surface flow(simulate a short time so the wave damping or rising is not obvious)
Second picture is the flow field of the circle;
Third picture is the mesh condition;
Fourth picture is the phase condition(three phase);

I can't open any of your photos. Make sure you save them in a good format (.png or .jpeg) and attach them by clicking "Manage Attachments" in the "Additional Options" section on the forum.
