Assess, validate, and optimize designs iteratively and easily in a cloud-based platform
As a specific type of quarter-turn valve, a ball valve employs an empty, punctured, and rotating ball device to control the fluid flow through it. When the ball’s hole is in line with the flow, the valve is operational, and closes when it is pivoted 90-degrees using an external handle.
These types of valves can be applied in a variety of scenarios, including but not limited to:
Ball valve applications need to be analyzed in the early design process to ensure design validation and, more specifically, optimize pressure drop and force behavior of the device. However, the high cost of hardware and steep learning curves of traditional, on-premises tools leave many designers to feel that simulation is not an option.
SimScale has eliminated such traditional hurdles, thanks to the power of the cloud. With SimScale, engineers can:
Using cloud-based simulation from SimScale, you can evaluate the given pressure drop, fluid flow patterns, and force behavior. Using online evaluation, pressure drop can be reduced and design strengths and weaknesses can be determined early in the design process, allowing for fast optimization.
