This tutorial will be compared to results found in the Fluent - SimCafe tutorial based on the same problem. Below is the pressure contour from the SimCafe tutorial.

This can be compared to the pressure contour calculated in the simulation. Select the pressure contour created in the results section, then change the Coloring to Banded to match the display style in the image above.

The AIM solution not only has similar maximum and minimum values for pressure, but the shapes of the pressure contours are virtually identical.
