Boundary Conditions for Fluent

    • thamarai

      Hi All,

      I am working in a project on a Fire Hydrant Valve and finding difficulty with the boundary conditions. Here is case.


      I want to calculate the mass flow rate in a valve. For the first case I assumed inlet pressure as 5.5 bar and pressure to be 4.5 bar after simulation I got -11Kg/s as mass flow rate. If I increase the pressure above 5.5 bar Im getting mass flow rate as positive . But Practically which is not possible. Why Iam getting this.?

      I used Steady state, Energy equation, With K epsilon Model, RNG. Kindly need your suggestion to over come this. Thank You.

      Which pressure are you changing? What pressure is 4.5 bar?  In future please keep similar questions in one thread to avoid duplication & confusion. I'll lock https://forum.ansys.com/forums/topic/boundary-conditions-for-a-valve/ for this reason.
