The notation, if it's in the standard format, doesn't make physical sense to me. At the very least, there are a list of assumptions above that you'd need to elaborate on. adrin CFDDmitry likes this.

So, basically, with a tee you have to break up the geometry into 3 "pipe" segments, each of which would solve the 1D partial differential equation with its own boundary and initial conditions; and the three solutions connected at the "tee point", by making sure they share the same density, pressure, energy, etc. By the way, you are missing a constitutive relationship between density and pressure (or something similar). There are 4 variables and 3 equations. For each pipe section "i", you'd have to discretize the pipe length L_i into N_i discrete points and write the differential equation in its finite difference form. The discretization is not that difficult and can be found in any basic applied numerical analysis. You have to sit down and write out the formulation; collect the like terms; combine them at the tee section to end up with a system of equations to solve. That's more than is warranted on this forum adrin
