hello,everyone. I have a problem about boundary conditions.
here is the picture.

requirements:
The first condition: the boundary conditon of pipe face 1 is "exhaust", the air could flow into pipe through pipe face 2, so how to set the boundary conditions of roadway face 1 and roadway face 2.

The second condition: the boundary conditon of pipe face 1 is "pressure-inlet", the air could flow into roadway through pipe face 1, so how to set the boundary conditions of roadway face 1 and roadway face 2.

 December 23, 2013, 21:03 #3 New Member   kylin Join Date: Sep 2013 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 12 thank you,lovecraft. the model is that a pipe is in another volume/domain(roadway),so there are two pairs of faces,namely 4 faces, they are pipe face 1 and roadway face 1, pipe face 2 and roadway face 2. now, if the boundary conditon of pipe face 1 is "exhasut",how to set the boundary conditon of roadway face 1 to let the air flow into the roadway??? hope for your reply.

air is in the roadway, I want the air to be subtracted into the pipe from pipe face 2 and flow out of pipe from pipe face 1.
so I could set the boundary condition of pipe face 1 to be "exhuast fan" to offer "suction power" to subtract the air around pipe face 2.
but as the adjacent face, how to set the boundary condition of roadway face 1??
hope you could understand.

 December 27, 2013, 22:46 #8 New Member   kylin Join Date: Sep 2013 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 12 yes, there is a fan at the end of pipe face 1 and I just set the boundary condition of pipe face 1 to be "exhuast fan" to describe the fan.
