 January 25, 2007, 00:27 orifice problem #1 renuka Guest   Posts: n/a hi i amnew to fluent. In my problem fluid is flowing through pipe but their is a orifice in the pipe closing 25 percent of cs area. how to define it in fluent ans where to define ? waiting for ur reply thanks RENUKA

 January 25, 2007, 03:54 Re: orifice problem #2 rams Guest   Posts: n/a u make changes in the geometry (pipe) to reduce the cross section by 25%. i mean add hollow cicular plate with the hollow area equal to the orffice hole area at the point where the orffice is located.

 February 3, 2007, 19:15 Re: orifice problem #6 gamal Guest   Posts: n/a Dear sir I am trying to model variable area orifice meter, the methodology is to use bluff body against the flow direction, and the system is connected to water tank 15m above the orifice level. My question how much I have to identify the operation pressure or I can use the atmospheric pressure. Thanks The configuration in this link http://public.cranfield.ac.uk/me/me028/courses/process/
