You have to be careful. The solution is calculated in Absolute Pressure (think of Ideal Gas Law... P=Rho*R*T... if P is in Gauge Pressure, then when P is close to the operating condition, Rho approaches infinity... therefore P must be in Absolute Pressure during the solution). If you forget to set your operating pressure and then input 3atmospheres as your inlet pressure, then Fluent is going to think the pressure is actually 4atm (because the default Operating Pressure is 1atm) and that can have a big impact on your solution. Hope my explaination is clear. Good luck, Jason
