A centrifugal pump is a mechanical device designed to move a fluid by means of the transfer of rotational energy from one or more driven rotors, called impellers. Fluid enters the rapidly rotating impeller along its axis and is cast out by centrifugal force along its circumference through the impeller’s vane tips. The action of the impeller increases the fluid’s velocity and pressure and also directs it towards the pump outlet. The pump casing is specially designed to constrict the fluid from the pump inlet, direct it into the impeller and then slow and control the fluid before discharge.t.
In this tutorial you will learn to simulate a centrifugal pump (impeller) using BladeGen, Turbogrid and Ansys CFX. You can download the mesh from this link.
The NACA four-digit wing sections define the profile by:
First digit describing maximum camber as percentage of the chord.
Second digit describing the distance of maximum camber from the airfoil leading edge in tenths of the chord.
OpenFOAM is the free, open source CFD software developed primarily by OpenCFD Ltd since 2004. It has a large user base across most areas of engineering and science, from both commercial and academic organisations.
Pipe wyes are used to to allow one pipe to join another pipe at some degree or angle. As the name suggests, the pipe wyes are Y-shaped pipe fitting devices.
You can make animations based on keyframes. Keyframes define the start and endpoints of each section of animation.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the Match Control tool in Ansys Meshing. Match Control allows duplicating the mesh in a body. We have two option Match Control Cyclic and Arbitrary.
The Body of Influence option is available in the Type field if you selected a body and Use Adaptive Sizing is set to No. Using this option, you can set one body as a source of another body
The Sphere of Influence option is available in the Type field after you select an entity such as a body, face, edge, or vertex.
By default, Use Adaptive Sizing is set to Yes, unless Physics Preference is set to CFD or Nonlinear Mechanical (in which case the default is Capture Curvature set to Yes),
