 October 18, 2001, 12:10 pressure drop within a pipe #1 Liouskos Jiannis Guest   Posts: n/a Hello everyone! My case is: Upward flow of air, within a pipe.I have set the external pressure eq to 0(relative to 1.0e5)and inlet velocity 2m/s, but the results are not logical.i.e. -1.0E-7(pa) at the bottom and 3.0e-5 at the top. Is there any specific setting that i haven't do correctly? Looking forward to your help. Thank you!

The pressure differential desribed seems to suggest that the flow is actual flowing down the pipe noy up it. Try reversing the direction of the velocity of the air going up the pipe. Habe you set the top of th pipe as an outlet / fixed pressure bouandary so that the air can flow out of the domain ? If not the air would tend to reverse diretion. I hope this helps Leon

Is there somethin g i can do about it? Thank you for your help
