Hi everyone, I am attempting to perform a rough simulation of a gun barrel muzzle blast. I am using density based, transient, viscous k-e model with standard wall function, energy equation on, initially carbon monoxide for gas in the barrel, initially air for gas outside the barrel.
I appear to have trouble with the boundary conditions. The flow appears to be progressing well, until the shock wave hits the edge of my model.
The only solution i can see would be to simply increase the domain size, but by doing so the 500k cell limit for the student version is exceeded quite easily.
I am using a pressure outlet boundary specification. I considered the pressure far field condition, but after reading about it, it appears it may not be best suited for this problem.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm open to any recommendations.
