Default Filler Pipe Fuel Flow
Posts: n/a
Hi, I got some question about fuel flow calculations.

Which solver, Fluent or StarCD, would you recommend for fuel flow through filler pipe and further into a fuel filled tank? What function or model should be available, what the other one is not able to provide out of the box? How important is the use of the appropriate turbulence model for a 'correct' calculation? I would expect, that standard k-eps models are not as recommended, due to the high streamline curvature in a bad design filler pipe!?

Regards! Fabian
