 May 16, 2008, 09:52 discharge coefficient #1 abudaniell Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Hello, May somebody explain to me how to obtain the discharge coefficient for orifice meter after we run the simulation for flow through orifice in pipe. Basically from the simulation result we just get the pressure different between upstream and downstream of orifice. How to use this data to get the discharge coefficient. Thank you

Transportation and metering of Fluids. Formula : U = (C/sqrt(1-B^4)) * sqrt (2 * (Pa-Pb)/rho) U is velocity through orifice. B is ratio of orifice diam to pipe diam rho is density of the fluid Re = (D*U*rho/mu) = 4*Mf/(pi*D*mu) will be useful to get the Velocity at the Orifice Mf is mass flow rate mu viscosity.

 May 24, 2008, 21:43 Re: discharge coefficient #3 abudaniell Guest   Posts: n/a Thank you. I have got the equation. I do a simulation of flow through orifice, with D - D/2 pressure tapping with using 2 dimensional model: 1. Which the pressure that should be used in the equation. Pressure at the wall? Pressure at the center of pipe? 2. Since I running using 2D model, when I check the result in summary it showed that the area of orifice is same with diameter that I set. So to obtain the mass flow rate it is using area as pi*D^2/4 or just using the value of diameter (D).
