Hi guys,


To realize a sector simulation we can start from engine main parameters specifing head_profile and bowl_profile with make surface utility.

What about if we have a general axisimmetric geometry and we would like to simulate just a sector of it? Is it possible in converge?
In other words, can I get a sector directly from the full geometry?

(I am working on both 2.3 and 2.2 versions)


Thanks for your availability.

Hello Andrea,

You can make use of the extract_profile utility in STUDIO, in order to create a sector from a full geometry. Click on "Extract profiles from surface.dat" in the Make engine sector surface window. You can extract the head and bowl profiles from your full geometry and import that into the make_surface utility to create a sector.

There are some requirements before you can go ahead extracting the head and bowl profiles from your full geometry. The full geometry must be centered at z=0 and any cut plane through the geometry must form a closed loop, implying you would need to remove the valves and ports from your geometry and close the holes.

Please refer to our manual for more information on this.

Hope this helps,

Sincerely,

Srivastava
