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?

Re: curvature analysis
FLUENT solves transport equations.

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

Re: curvature analysis
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.
