masuarez is on a distinguished road
I am using Openfoam 1.7 chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam solver and I'm trying to get the same results as in Fluent. However, I'm getting different results (Pressure and Velocity).

My case is as follows:

Straight duct with a constant temperature bottom wall. the area of the inlet is 4x10-6 m^2. Reynolds no of 2000 (laminar flow). length of pipe is .25 m

The following are my boundary conditions

type flowRateInletVelocity
flowRate 7.28e-5
value uniform (0 0 0)

type outletInlet
outletValue uniform(0 0 0)
value uniform(0 0 0)

type fixedValue
value $internalField

type outletInlet
value $internalField
outletValue $internalField
For my pressure boundary conditions I have tried several other ones such as :


I have not tried freeStreamPressure because i Dont know if it applies in this case

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

The problem with my results is that my velocity decreases at the outlet. the initial velocity at the inlet is approx 10.4 m/s, at the outlet i'm getting velocities less than 3 m/s... which does not make sense
