I want to simulate behavior of flow into pipe when the pipe is impacted by pressure of environmen at place that is defineted. First i used CFD to perform it to flow into pipe and the pipe has no pressure impact. So if i want to do my work, what i have to do? Somebody here can help me to solve that, thanks you very much.

Do you mean that there is no "pressure gradient" ?

But i want to simulate flow into the pipe with a pressure which force to face on the pipe. In my mind, i design this model and mesh it by CFD, i'll connect it to solve by static to get strain. Then, i contineu to do with CFD, how do you think my way? Is it wrong or right, can u comment ur ideal?

In this case, you need pressure gradient to be specified. So, your pressure at the outlet of the pipe should be lesser than the inlet, so that a positive pressure gradient develops for the fluid to flow. Otherwise you can give a velocity inlet and an outflow boundary condition.What CFD package are you using? Flow through a pipe is a fairly common test case..most commercial CFD software should have documentation on it.
