My name is Khanh. I am trying to learn about different inlet and outlet boundary conditions in Ansys. However, I run into a problem with a made-up example where I tried to simulate a flow in a pipe with pressure inlet and outlet boundary conditions.
The pipe dimension was: radius = 10 mm, and length = 20 mm
The inlet pressure was 2 bar or 200,000 Pa and the outlet pressure was 1 atm or 101,325 Pa.
I set the operating pressure at 101,325 Pa, inlet gauge total pressure 98,675 Pa and outlet gauge pressure 0 Pa. I used air at 20 C as the fluid.
When I ran the simulation, the inlet pressure did not stay constant as I expected it should. Could anyone please help explain what is going on? I feel like I have misunderstood the physics very badly. Please help.April 7, 2022 at 5:07 amViewing 1 reply thread
