Analyzing Pressure Drop in Valve Flows Using ANSYS CFD - ANSYS e-Learning

Pressure drop is a commonly occurring phenomenon seen in many industrial fluidic systems. Pressure loss occurs when the flow encounters resistance due to surface friction, viscosity and the presence of valves and fittings. CFD provides a cost effective way to analyze the flow in these systems and can be used as a design tool to minimize the pressure losses.

ANSYS CFD and its integration into the Workbench environment allow for easy of pre-processing, solving and post-processing such problems. ANSYS CFD allows for efficient analysis and comparison of design modifications, or changes in operating parameters. Join CAE Associates in this ANSYS e-learning session which will demonstrate setting up and solving flow through a valve using ANSYS CFX.

Topics Include:

  • Mesh requirements
  • Solver setup using CFX-Pre
  • Post-processing using CFD post
