    "A vortex crosses the pressure opening" warning, but the Inlet/Outlet ratio is not correct.

      I'm trying to determine the flow rate of water through some complicated geometry and I'm getting the above warning. I've seen this before and managed to fix the issue. However in this case, the error does not seem applicable. I've set goals for inlet and outlet flow with only outlet used for convergence. These goals use the same surfaces which my pressure boundary conditions use. As I'm typing this:

       

      Current Values

      Inlet Flow = 10.8982

      Outlet Flow = ( - ) 10.8995

      Inlet / Outlet = .9999

       

      Average Values

      Inlet Flow = 10.9128

      Outlet Flow = ( - ) 10.914

      Inlet / Outlet = .9999

       

      Yet the warning message states that the Inlet / Outlet = 0.235463. Not even close... What gives? Should this lower my confidence in the results?
