 September 19, 2012, 02:32 Boundary Condition #1 New Member   Prashant Kumar Singh Join Date: Jun 2012 Location: IIT Bombay Posts: 19 Rep Power: 7 Hello I have given BC at inlet of a compressor as velocity profile and total T And at outlet BC as mass flow rate but it did not run, showing error that P is not mention at any boundary.I wanted to know is it necessary to give Pressure as a BC in case of compressor at any one of the boundary. If my compressor outlet is going into the atmosphere then what could be the pressure(total/static) boundary condition at outlet plane. Thanks Prashant

You calculate the inlet velocity from the compressor flow coefficient (phi) and dynamic pressure (Pv) as well. Then you calculate the inlet static pressure (Ps=Pt-Pv). Pt as total pressure and Ps as static pressure. the outlet static pressure can be calculated by the compressor head coefficeint (si). By in entering these BCs your solver will be able to calculate the velocity and pressure field. Best regards.
