I have one doubt in FLuent. ie
I want to specify outlet pressure as 5 bar in my problem using Fluent.
If i use operating pressure as 1bar(101325 Pa). Then what value i have to specify. Whether 5 bar or I have to take relative pressure value (5-1=4bar).
Any one plz help me to sortout this problem.

Thanks in Advance

All calculated pressures in your domain (including outlet pressures) are gauge pressures i.e relative to your operating pressure. So your outlet pressure BC will be 4bar , if your operating pressure is 1 bar.
Alternately you could specify your operating pressure as 5 bar and outlet BC as 0 bar.
