reverse flow

Re: reverse flow

if your bound is not too close to what you study, it will not affect the results. So enlarge your domain of study or change of boundary type if possible.

Re: reverse flow
if your outlet BC is pressure-outlet note that you do not need to set a BC since it's asked for backflow pressure i.e. a flow inter from the outlet which is the source of reverse flow.

Re: reverse flow
