Hello All,

I am very new to this forum, and to CFD. Let me know if I'm not obeying proper forum etiquette, and thanks for having me!

I have a question about finding accurate pressures in a CFD simulation I am running. I have picked various points within the model to examine the static pressure and velocity at.

I have 2 inlets and 1 outlet.

Inlet 1 B.C.: Volumetric Flow rate, temp
Inlet 2 B.C.: Volumetric Flow rate, temp
Outlet B.C.: Atmospheric pressure

The problem is the points are returning with a negative gauge pressure, when I think they should have a positive gauge pressure. Should I apply an atmospheric gauge pressure to the inlets, in order to get an accurate pressure reading? Is there a better way to do this?

I might be going about this the wrong way, as I said I am very new to CFD.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Never mind, I figured out my problem. I was misreading the program's results (between gauge pressure and atmospheric pressure).
