 April 27, 2000, 10:13 about gravitation #1 Wason Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all, When I simulate the flow field of water pass a 2D large pipe,I used gravitation equal to -9.8(y direction) and the others were nornally set as air flow, but the contours of pressure apparently didn't include the effection gravitation? what's wrong with me? What should I do when I consider the gravitation in 2d/3d problem? thanks Wason

If you set the inlet velocity to nearly zero, then the left-hand side convection terms and the right-hand side diffusion terms will be very small. In this case, the pressure distribution in the y-direction will be rho*g*h (dpdy=rho*g, so after integration, it gives p-p0=rho*g*h, where h=y-y0). (3). In this case, you don't need a computer or a computer program. But, if you are using someone's code, make sure that the battery is included . (sometimes, the label on the package will say that the battery is not included. In this case, the energy comes from the gravitational force term, rho*g. So, make sure that rho*g is actually included when you run the program)

Setting the reference density rho-0 = 0 should help you with the cost of worse convergence performance.
