I am trying to simulate the problem of pipe flow in which air. The simulation results of velocity at the entry exit and overall view we can see how the flow develops and the values of velocity change.
To set the profile according to the downstream cells.
Openfoam mass flow rate boundary condition. Download simFlow CFD software for Windows and Linux from. For a mass-based flux. To be normal to the patch.
To match the specified flow rate. The simulation parameters. – the flow rate should be provided in kgs – if c rho is none the flow rate is in m3s – otherwise c rho should correspond to the name of the density field – if the density field cannot be found in the database the user must.

A uniform plug flow is set by default. From the flux volumetric or mass-based whose direction is assumed. I am essentially trying to replicate the boundary conditions used in experimental setup through OpenFOAM 70.
– the flow rate should be provided in kgs – if c rhoName is none the flow rate is in m3s. The flow rate should be provided in kgs. Inlet condition with time-varying flow-rate.
Specify the outlet density using the c rhoOutlet entry. For a mass-based flux. Its fixed value is equal to massFlowRate.
Where flux is mass flux the flow rate is mass flow rate. It is very simple to set interface boundary condition in fluent but I am facing difficulty for giving boundary condition in OpenFOAM. This boundary condition provides a velocity boundary condition derived.
For the outlet of the system the mass flow rate has been provided and at the inlet total pressuretotal temperature as been provided. SimFlow is one of the most popular and comprehensive OpenFOAM GUIs. After updating the blockMeshDict and pressure and velocity boundary conditions file simulation is ran using icoFoam solver which is used to simulate turbulent incompressible flows.
New massSource fvOption specifies a mass source to the continuity equation and to all field equations in OpenFOAM-dev https. For a mass-based flux. 6212 Flow rate calculation flowRateFaceZone Calculates the flow rate through a specified face zone by summing the flux on patch faces.
To convert from a mass flow rate to a volumetric flow rate for incompressible flows. Detailed Description Velocity inlet boundary condition either correcting the extrapolated velocity or creating a uniform velocity field normal to the patch adjusted to match the specified flow rate. For a mass-based flux.
Velocity outlet boundary condition which corrects the extrapolated velocity to match the specified flow rate. This condition is useful for simulating unsteady internal flow problems for which both a mass flow boundary is unrealistic and a pressure boundary is susceptible to flow reversal. The condition sets the static pressure at the patch p_p based on a specification of the total pressure p_0 and pressure drop p_d specified as a function of the volumetric flow rate.
A Symmetry boundary condition is used in this case as it is a cylinder and flow is axi-symmetric along the axis. This boundary condition provides a velocity boundary condition for multphase flow based on a user-specified volumetric flow rate variableHeightFlowRate This boundary condition provides a phase fraction condition based on the local flow conditions whereby the values are constrained to lay between user-specified upper and lower bounds. Detailed Description Velocity inlet boundary condition either correcting the extrapolated velocity or creating a uniform velocity field normal to the patch adjusted to match the specified flow rate.
For a mass-based flux. Flow Rate Boundary Condition The simple flow rate can be prescribed at the inlet. The flow rate should be provided in kgs.
For solvers where the flux is volumetric the flow rate is volumetric. For the specified mass flow rate I want to use flowRateOutletVelocity. The flow rate should be provided in kgs if rhois none the flow rate is in m3s.
It was developed for use in simulating confined combustion. Would you like to suggest an improvement to this page. This most basic condition is termed as Inlet and Outlet boundary conditions in CFD parlance though the choice of field variables such as velocity pressure temperature mass flow rate may vary as per problem set-up.
We can see the upper wall has a velocity of 0 noslip boundary condition we can also see how the velocity is the highest at the tip of the wedge which co-relates to the physics that describes the flow. To convert from a mass flow rate to a volumetric flow rate.
