 January 27, 2003, 13:53 How can it b possible? Flow from low p to high p?? #1 Chris Guest   Posts: n/a Maybe there's something I'm doing wrong and I'm oblivious to it, and I'd like to ask if you can spot what my mistake is. Why is it that when I use the following boundary conditions in a straight 3-D pipe 1) Pressure inlet: 300,000 Pa (total), 268684 Pa (gauge) 2) Pressure outlet: 200,000 Pa I keep getting reversed flow at both boundaries and there seems to be a continual divergence in my values of pressure to either 0 Pa or 5,000,000 Pa, rather than convergence. I don't understand what error I could have committed! Please advise if you can. Thank you very much!

Flow from low p to high #2 Anders Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I have experienced the continuous pressure rise at some times, having a mesh where some nodes are accidently not merged - i.e. the mesh is not continuos. Have you checked that? Which program are you using?

Is there some place where the flow stops, or where you have a large pressure gradient in the imposed flow direction? If so, it may be where your mesh is "cracked". Try to use the Connect Faces command to see if there are adjacent faces that do not connect in your mesh.

I suppose this means that the mesh is not cracked. I've just notied: Does it matter if I clicked on "init" choosing pressure inlet, and I get a negative value for z-velocity? Because I thought this was simply a matter of sign convention...I don't know whether this shows that my flow will definitely be reversed though...
