Solver for pressure wave analysis
Hello everybody :)

I have been studying the tutorials, manuals, this forum and google. The problem might be that I am not really sure what I am looking for.

Here is my problem:

I have a curved short pipe with closed ends.

How a pressure wave travels from one end to the other, then reflects against the closed end to travel back the pipe.

Fluid: Air at 25C

(I am simplifying the 180 phase shift that would appear from a open end, but suggestions about how to better analyze this is much appreciated.)

Which solver should I look into for this type of analysis?

Is there any tutorial that might be helpful?

Thank you,

Hi Bylund,

its a quite long time ago, but did you find out something. I would be very interresseted in your work. Im trying to simulate something similar, but im first looking for literatur resources about pressure wave propagation in fluids and the analytical approach to get a better feeling of how to built up and asses my CFD models.

let me know, how your work proceeded

best regards
