Default Simulated data vs. experimental data
Posts: n/a

My experimental data and my simulated data are very much different i.e. max values plotted with XYPlot for radial velocity at the same point in the grid are 0.15m/s (experiment) and 0.09m/s (FLuent v5.5 data from case file simulated in Mixsim).

I read in the FAQ site that Mixsim overpredicts Power consumption i.e. a bug (tried this and it's true, with experimental data my Power no. value = 2.26 but with Mixsim data it is over 4.0), does this in any way affect my velocity values?

Is this a bug? Has any body encountered this before? Please tell me how to rectify it.

Thank you.
