My computation domain consists of a 1 inch tall by 20 inches long duct attached to an "open space" at the end to simulate free-stream conditions.My goal is for a given inlet mach number to vary the back pressure of the "open space" so I can see the effect it has on the shock train formation in the rectangular duct section.I am having trouble getting my residuals to converge and I was wondering if anyone has some feedback/ideas for getting this model to work correct.Here are my Fluent setup parameters:General:Density-based solverSteady stateModels:Energy equation onMaterials:Air, ideal gas, sutherland viscosityBoundary codnitions:Pressure inlet: Total pressure 304,000 Pa, static pressure 52,900 Pa, total temperature 500 K (corresponds to mach ~ 1.8)Far field outlet: Static pressure want to vary from 1.5x to 3x inlet static pressure, mach number 1.65, static temperature 300 KReference values: compute from inletStandard initialization from inlet1000 iterationsAttached is an image of my computational domain with the boundaries labeled for reference.

Don't use far field with a pressure inlet. Depending on the length of the exhaust jet you may need to extend the outlet region. Finally, with pressure in & out the massflow becomes part of the solution which makes the initial condition more important: you may need to patch the jet flow.

I would suggest that you place the pressure farfield boundaries much further from the outlet of your tube than what is shown in your figure. You want to minimize any interaction between the exiting flow and those farfield boundaries. 20X tube cross-section distance from the outlet would be a good start.
I hope this helps!
