I have a pressure relief valve, which has been tested in flow lab with water as fluid. Inlet pressure 100 psig and outlet exposed to atmosphere. And i have tested flow rate value with me. I am trying to simulate the same in solidworks flow simulation. I am setting boundary conditions as below.


Inlet = Total Pressure = ( gauge pressure + atmospheric pressure ) = 100 + 14.7 = 114.7 psi

Outlet = Environment Pressure = 14.7 psi


Is it right boundary conditions ? Kindly help
