Boundary condition with pressure and massflow at inlet — Ansys Learning Forum

Boundary condition with pressure and massflow at inlet

Hello !!!

We were given a simple nozzle model where the inlet has both a specified massflow and a pressure. Is there a way to give both the pressure and a massflow at the inlet in FLUENT ?

Please share your thoughts on this !!

    Yes and no. We can set the massflow and then set the pressure if the nozzle is supersonic. You can set a pressure inlet with a target mass flow. Ultimately, the whole point of CFD is to model the system, if we set pressure we calculate mass flow and vice versa.
