Hi Guys,

I want to simulate a very long pipe ( say 100m) with dia only 50mm for the pressure drop. Shall I solve for the whole pipe ya is there any way to model a short length to get the result for the whole pipe.

maybe you can model the symmetry..but you need the full length.
But.. are you sure you need cfd simulation to find just the pressure drop? If you only care about pressure drop , why dont you try calculate it?
