[ASK] Flow in Corrugated Pipe with FLUENT
Hi Friends,

I'm a student and now i'm studying about flow in pipe (internal flow) with CFD. I have a case about corrugated pipe, it looks like this:

It's a 2D case, fluid flow from left of the pipe and out from the other side. Flow is assumed steady and I use k-epsilon model of viscosity. Here's the GAMBIT model:

The goal is to calculate the pressure drop, but I still new to FLUENT so I don't know what to do. I have already mesh it with element: quad, type: map, and interval size: 1. I give velocity inlet and pressure outlet as it's boundary condition. Here's the detail of my problem:

- inlet diameter and outlet diameter: 0.1 m
- pipe length: 1 m
- small diameter: 0.004 m
- fluid: water liquid
- inlet velocity: 0.2 m/s
- Reynolds number: 7961.715
- Turbulent Intensity: 5.2%

Other parameters like fluid property has already set in FLUENT. Is there any other data did I have to enter in FLUENT? For your info, I use FLUENT 6.3.26. Please show me steps to get data about pressure drop.

Please help me to solve my problem. I really need it. Thank you so much everybody...

Everything looks ok. You just have to solve it
