Hi, I have a pipe looking l
I have a pipe looking like this:
and its extruded along the flow direction (z-axis).
When I run simpleFoam (3000 Steps) I get unrealistic values for k(at least 184 though u = 3.725 m/s). Also near the boundaries they look strange. k should go back to 0 and epsilon should rise constantly.
I made a simpler case with a 2D channel and a similar mesh. Here the results look quite good.
Any idea what i am doing wrong?
B.c.s for k and epsilon are zeroGradient (similar to the tutorial cases in simpleFoam / turbFoam) and just for the internal field I gave values. I also tried values on inlet but then I get an error message saying I need zeroGradient at inlet patch.
Thanks for your help
what turbulence model do you u
what turbulence model do you use?
Have you had a look at boundaryFoam and its tutorial? Even channelOodles. That might help.
Why don't you try a different
Why don't you try a different mesh configuration, check O-Grid configuration, that might help.
I am using the classical k-eps
I am using the classical k-epsilon model.
I took a look on boundaryFoam. It uses zeroGradient b.c. for both, k and epsilon as well. channelOodles didn't help me that much since it is LES and i am not so familar with LES.
And changing the mesh ... well, I don't like to use O-Grid for this solution since I would prefer a mesh that can be made finer at the boundaries easyly.
Maybe any other ideas?
Anyhow, thank you very very much for your help so far.

Well, found my problem. Did patch instead of wall in blockMeshDict. It's always the simple things that make life so interesting ;)
