 October 14, 2009, 09:52 Velocity inlet BC problem #1 Member   Felipe Gutiérrez Donoso Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 31 Rep Power: 10 Sponsored Links I have a 5" plate orifice device in a pipe system. The calculated speed at the inlet is 0.61 m/s (20" inlet), that corresponds to 120 lt/s. I run the calculation and the resulting mean velocity in the orifice is 3.2 m/s, something diferent to the 9.2 resulting from dividing Flow/area. The fluid is incompresible, any suggestion about it??

 October 15, 2009, 08:06 #3 Member   Felipe Gutiérrez Donoso Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 31 Rep Power: 10 I´m using velocity inlet BC (0.61 m/s) and Pressure outlet BC at the other end (Atmospheric, 0 Pa). The turbulence model is k-epsilon with standard wall treatment. The initialisation is 0.61 m/s, calculating from the inlet. The mean velocity at the inlet is 0.61 m/s in a developed flow section, and into the plate orifice is 5.1 m/s, the calculated velocity there must be 15 m/s according to flow/area on an incompresible flow. The residuals are 10e-5 and it seems to have a good convergence. Thanks for reading Philipov.
