 January 16, 2011, 03:39 pressure boundary condition in AVL FIRE #1 Member   Join Date: Apr 2009 Posts: 41 Rep Power: 10 I am performing numerical modeling of gas injection Through a single hole nozzle into a closed chamber with avl FIRE. I intend to define a Total Pressure at inlet of Injector, but the solution does not show any sensitivity to the boundary condition set. It appears that the boundary condition does not "penetrate" into the domain. I have checked almost everything and all the solution setting seems to be appropriately set. The flow velocity at nozzle exit for pressure ratio of 20 between inlet and chamber is only 2 m/s in first time step!!!!! so definitely sth basic is wrong. I would be grateful if anyone help me through the staff. neu likes this.

 January 30, 2011, 06:53 #3 Member   Join Date: Apr 2009 Posts: 41 Rep Power: 10 there is no outlet in the domain. Stagnation pressure boundary condition needs Mach Number and Dynamic pressure be set at inlet. these values are actually the solution results! i.e. one can not determine them at first. anyway, I have checked almost everything in the solution and got nothing!

Hi doki

I also have similar problem to you. I want to inject gas from 1mm diameter nozzle to a constant volume chamber.
What boundary conditions should I use?

Thanks,

I mean if the flow is under-expanded or not.

 December 22, 2011, 13:17 #6 New Member   Join Date: Dec 2011 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 7 Hi Doki Thanks so much. You mean that the total pressure boundary condition is not good. What boundary condition do you suggest? Yes, my flow is under expanded. I mean that the injection pressure is nearly 100 atm and the chamber initial pressure is under 10 atm. 1- I use from simple method. 2- My time step in intial stage of calculation is 1e-07 and the gradually reduces to 2e-05. Would you Please help me?

Anyway, the pressure boundary conditions are a kind of "slow" in convergence.

I have some question: 1- How many Min. number of iterations are need for good convergence? 2- Is it need that I active Second order option in Run mode section? 3- What about for activation of two stage pressure correction? 4- What should I choose in compressibility section between compressible, subsonic and supersonic? Best,
