New STAR-CCM+ User... I need an urgent help please
Hi All,

I'm a new student and i have been taking CFD course. The doctor at the university asked us to choose one idea to use it in CFD after model it in SolidWorks. Actually, i have chosen to model Gate Valve. I have no idea what parameters and values i have to use as initial, boundary conditions and other important parameters. Please help me in this project and i'm wondering that, if i can find tutorials for how to model a gate valve (industrial Gate Valve) and simulate it in STAR CCM+ to check the pressure drop and Cv and the flow path. Your support will be appreciated in this important matter.

hey hi ,
save the part which u had made in solid works in parasolid format(x_t),

open ccm import file , extract fluid volume using surface wrapper , then re mesh it using surface remesher, closed all the holes , go for volume meshing , is physics select the appropriate physics model i suggest , steady state, gas, constant density, k-e turb etc, or its up to ur doc ,give velocity inlet @ valve inlet & pressure outlet @ valve outlet , get result in reports section , point to the boundary where u want values

i am sending u a link hope this might help.or u can go to CCM help section
good luck buddy
