Ricardo VECTIS Pipe Junction Example
VECTIS is a three-dimensional Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a branch of applied ma... solver that has been developed specifically to address fluid flow simulations in the vehicle and engine industries. VECTIS is developed around a completely automatic mesh generator, providing a rapid turnaround time for CFD analyses.
This example models fluid in two pipes which meet at a junction. The fluid used in this example is air, and the two pipes have diameters of 25 mm and 30 mm respectively, joining a larger pipe of 40 mm diameter.
|Simulation Code||Ricardo Vectis 2016.2|
|Description||This Ricardo Vectis example job models a pipe junction. It is run in 3 phases. Phase 2 creates a mesh from the geometry. Phase 4 performs the domain decomposition into 8 parts. Phase 5 runs the solver using an unlimited rdm license.|
|Suggested Hardware||Emerald / 8 cores|
phase2 pipej.mesh; phase4 -np 8; phase5 -np 8 -hf $HOME/mpd.hosts -rdmu pipej.INP
