    Inlet pressure in flow simulation for elbow

    Hassan Jafari

      Hi all, I've a problem in flow simulation in solidworks. I've an elbow which has a inlet and one outlet. The inlet fluid is carbon dioxide and the boundary conditions are: mass flow rate is 72 kg/s, inlet pressure is 7.2 Mpa and Temperature is 350 K. and outlet is in pressure outlet.My problem is that, when i input the inlet boundary conditions and next run it, maximum pressure inside the elbow is under 1 Mpa, in real it cant happened. Even inlet pressure in solved problem is less than 1 Mpa.. Whats my wrongs? and please help me to solve this problem. Best Regards
