So, I am running a VoF model in Fluent with two different sets of boundary conditions. It is an open channel flow with two phases (water and air), and the turbulence model is k-omega.
I created a report at a point near the inlet and another one near the outlet to monitor the flow velocity and, once I finished running the models, I noticed that the velocities for the same point were different.
inlet bc: pressure-inlet
outlet bc: pressure-outlet

Mesh resolution and convergence will play a part too, and the mass flow plot looks a bit "angular" so how well converged was each time step?

I want to compare the two boundary conditions, all others parameters are the same, only thing I changed was the inlet boundary condition
