CFD of tilting disk check valve
Does anyone know of any CFD consulting firms that can model a tilting disk check valve with the following parameters?

24" Crane 5 tilting disk check valve

Flowrates will range from 100 gpm to 12000 gpm

I have talked with Fluent and they said that they had a Beta test version of their code that would combine the fluids and structures components, but are not sure of the accuracy yet..

Note: Structures are required since part of the problem is to determine the disk position and if the disk flutters at the low flows.
