Outlet not fuctioning


#1

Hi im trying to Push air through a tube at 11.5m/s, and out of a slit on the bottom out the tube. I make the slit on the bottom of the tube an outlet point, but everytime i run a test nothing ever comes out once i look at the post process results, can you please guide me on what i have done wrong as i have looked at many examples and videos to try to help me. Thanks Dan

Hey Dan,

Your velocity inlet is in the wrong direction. Currently it points out of the domain.

Also, try using the standard meshing tool for this geometry. Your current mesh consists of a cell only.

Let us know if this solves the issue!
