Energy losses


#1

Hi,

How can I see hydraulic energy losses in your pipe tutorial nº 2 ? for example, in the bifurcation.

Thanks!

Hey @andrea_perez!

If you do not work with heat transfer and just want to see how big the energy loss is which comes from the pressure drop you can use result control items and assign the inlet as well as outlet faces to your simulation. There you use the average surface data to get more insight into the pressure differences. This project demonstrates it very well: https://www.simscale.com/projects/jousefm/ventilation_duct_flow_optimization_-hpac_webinar/ - let us know if you have any other questions or if anything is not clear.

Cheers!
