Hi CFDealers

Im setting up my first OF-case (water flowing through symmetric vessel with in- and outlet). After simulating the fluid seems to react to my symmetry plane like to a wall (Paraview picture: Outlet and symmetry plane on the left).

Is there something wrong with my setup or should I increase simulation time (10 s by now)?

I attached the pic and also my U-file

Thanks in advance
