 December 1, 2009, 03:00 Pressure Poisson Equation #1 New Member   Arnie Join Date: Jul 2009 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 10 Sponsored Links hi friends, I am writing a program for solving NS equations. The scheme i have thought of is similar to SIMPLER. Using the expression for velocities (as a function of neighbor velocities, body forces and pressure gradient) in the continuity equation, I derived a discretised, elliptic equation for pressure (not pressure correction). however, I am confused as to how to apply boundary condition for outlet or nodes where pressure is given as a boundary condition. Because, derivation of the discretised pressure equation using continuity equation is not possible where pressure BC is given. Can anybody help me in this regard? Thanks

But for an inlet wouldn't you need to specify the pressure there? I've always just used a p = 0 at the inlet. I would appreciate an opinion on this. Thanks.

for incompressible flow, we only consider the pressure difference . for the inlet, generaly, the normal speed is known. so we have the u'=de*pc' = 0, then we have de = 0 then Ae= rho*de*Ae =Ae=0
