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.
These types of valves can be applied to a number of scenarios, including::
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:.
In this project, a thermal shock analysis of a globe valve is performed to predict performance in terms of valve pressure drop and the force acting upon walls.
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.
