Evaluate, validate, and optimize designs iteratively and easily in a cloud-based platform
A globe valve, different from other types of valve devices, is utilized for regulating fluid flow in a pipeline, and is characterized by a mobile plug or disc element as well as a static ring seat within a (commonly) spherical body.
Typical Globe Valve Applications
These types of valves can be applied to a number of scenarios, including:
Turbine lube oil systems
Turbine drains and seals
High-point vents and low-point drains
Fuel oil systems
Systems where leak tightness is important
Cooling liquid systems
Why Is Online Simulation with SimScale Needed for This Application?
Globe valve applications need to be analyzed in the early design process to predict performance in terms of pressure drop and force acting on the walls within a structure. 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 made it possible to jump through such traditional hurdles, thanks to the power of the cloud. With SimScale, engineers can now:.
Run multiple simulations in parallel for faster design optimization
Get started quickly with an easy-to-learn interface
Avoid manual updates, installation, or maintenance
Simulate other CFD, FEA, or thermal applications
Want to try SimScale to optimize your own globe valve design?
In this study, the valve flow coefficient (K_v value) of a globe valve was calculated. The detailed analysis explains how the geometry and meshing were set up, which simulations were run, as well as how the results and conclusions were found with detailed post-processed images.
This project shows how SimScale can be used to analyze the fluid flow through valves, trying to comprehend the various processes occurring before, during, and after the passage of water through the valve.
