Hello everyone,

Is there any way for find the force on pipe outlet due to pressure? From Fluent manual, I came to know that Fluent gives force on wall only..... so I was wondering if anyone has any idea about it ?

Regards,
Tanjina

Hi,

I can not understand the intention of your question.

Pressure = Force/Area. You can find out the area from Fluent and multiply with pressure.

Sorry, jsm. I forgot to mention that it is partially filled pipe at outlet, so pressure distribution is like attached figure (First line)...... so in my thinking I have to integrate the area and pressure to find out the force. That's why I am looking for some way in fluent which can do this work for me. Correct me if I a wrong.

Tanjina

Ok. Now I understood your question.

You can do it in another way. Create iso surface in outlet for liquid phase and find out the area of liquid surface and then multiply with pressure.

If your outlet is complex shape, you need to do trial and error by using iso clip .
