'Analysis of Complex Valve Arrangements' simulation project by sjoshi


I created a new simulation project called 'Analysis of Complex Valve Arrangements':

This project simulates the effect of valve-positions on fluid flow through a pipeline network.

More of my public projects can be found here.


This simulation models the regulation of flow using a system of butterfly valves. The geometry was constructed in Salome using a CAD Model of the butterfly valve (courtesy André Micalli). The flow field was then extracted and uploaded as geometry input to the platform. Meshing was done using snappyHexMesh with approximately 150000 volume elements.

The simulation shows the capability of the SimScale platform to analyze complex flow scenarios for valve system analysis.
