Ricardo VECTIS Pipe Junction Example

VECTIS is a three-dimensional Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) 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.
