 June 12, 2007, 08:04 Pressure loss prediction #1 Arata Ivan Guest   Posts: n/a Hallo.. I have a case of pressure loss prediction of a control valve (3d problem). 4 boundary areas: -Inlet section (condition: pressure inlet) -Outlet section (condition: ????) -Pipe wall (condition: wall) -Valve disc wall (condition: wall) My input are: -Geometry -Inlet flow data (p,T,W..) I want to obtain the valve outlet pressure using K-Epsilon. What's the best way for you? What conditition can I set (best way) for the outlet section? Thanks a lot...

Thanks, AJ

The CFX demo is nice too, but I think it's very simple because the input data are the inlet total pressure and the outlet staic pressure: INLET: Total pressure = 12psi OUTLET: Average static pressure (0Pa) Thank you Kind Regards Ivan

Of course, I can't evaluate the pressure drop by inviscid calculation bat I think the guideline is ok. Now I have K-Epsilon convergence problems, but i hope it's a grid problem..... We'll see... Thank you
