 June 16, 2006, 01:51 reverseflow at pressure outlet boundary #1 Madhukar Rapaka Guest   Posts: n/a hi i am simulating a flow in a cylindrical geometry. i have defined the outflow with a pressure outlet boundary. During the simulation in fluent, i am getting a warning, that reverse flow in 23 faces at pressure outlet. I have checked my mesh, and itseems to ba ok(i mean to say that the skew sizes and skew angles, edge ratios of the mesh faces are good...some faces have skew size about 0.91). the residuals are decreasing uniformly. my question here is: will there be any problem in the final results becos of the reverse flow at the outlet. thanks in advance

And this number is decreasing as the iterations are going forward. what would be the problem. thanks in advance
