Default Velocity overprediction

What may cause the flow velocity overprediction of 30% in its maximum point? Problems begin already at the secondary inlet boundary : the U-velocity value after computation is 55% higher than the initial one defined in the BC. The flow swich for BC is 'Fixed Mass'.

Thanks, Julie

You should use the 'Fixed Velocity' switch for your second inlet as opposed to 'Fixed Mass'. STAR-CD adjusts the inlet velocity to match the mass flow that you want fixed by (roe)*A*|U|.

The problem is that I need mass flow to be fixed... There was no overprediction with more coarse grid even with 'Fixed Mass' option.
