Investigation of applying physics informed neural networks on the test case involving flow past Converging-Diverging (CD) Nozzle has been investigated. Both Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and Physics Informed Neural Network (PINN) are used to do the training and prediction. Results show that Artificial Neural Network (ANN) by itself is already able to give relatively good prediction. With the addition of PINN, the error reduces even more, although by only a relatively small amount. This is perhaps due to the already good prediction. The effects of batch size, training iteration and number of epochs on the prediction accuracy have already been tested. It is found that increasing batch size improves the prediction. On the other hand, increasing the training iteration may give poorer prediction due to overfitting. Lastly, in general, increasing epochs reduces the error. More investigations should be done in the future to further reduce the error while at the same time using less training data. More complicated cases with time varying results should also be included. Extrapolation of the results using PINN can also be tested.
