Summary0003193: Strange Flow Result with rhoPimpleFoam and crash
DescriptionI ran a simple straight pipe with rhoPimpleFoam, however it doesn't run well, it gives strange flow and stops very soon. The flow seems being blocked at the exit of the pipe. You may see the flow from the attached picture. I have tried structured mesh but the problem still occurs.

There was also another issue, the rhoPimpleFoam reports negative initial temperature and stopped. I could solve this by using the "limitTemperature" in fvOptions (from Internet); however I have no clue about the blocking of flow.
Steps To ReproduceJust run the model with rhoPimpleFoam
Additional InformationModel: a simple straight pipe, wall temperature 293K, inlet at 353K flow speed 10m/s, outlet at 293K

Medium: air at 293K
