curvature analysis
 
I am wondering if it could be possible to calculate the curvature and torsion of a 3d pipe (i.e a vessel) with Fluent, Fidap or Gambit?

If yes how and if no is there any other program to do this?

FLUENT solves transport equations.

The sort of program you want is PATRAN or NASTRAN or something similar.

Thanks a lot. Could you be more specific? I would also like to know if the torsion of a pipe (a vessel) can be measured with these programs.

Bye
