Pipe Fittings are Piping component that helps in Changes the direction of the flow such as elbows, tees. Changes the size of the pipe such as reducers, reducing tees. Connect different components such as couplings and stop the flows such as Caps.

There are different types of pipe fitting used in piping. Pipe Fittings used in piping work are mainly Elbow, Tee, Reducer, Union, Coupling, Cross, Cap, Swage Nipple, Plug, Bush, Expansion Joint, Adapters, Olet (Weldolet, Sockolet, Elbowlet, Thredolet, Nipolet, Letrolet, Swepolet), Steam Traps, Long Radius Bend, Flanges and Valve.

Pipe Elbow

The Elbow is used more than any other pipe fittings. It Provides flexibility to change the pipe direction. Elbow mainly available in two standard types 90° and 45°. However, it Can be cut to any other degree. Elbows are available in two radius types, Short radius (1D) and Long radius (1.5D).

Elbow Pipe

In this tutorial, we will simulate an Elbow 2D in the Steady and Transient state. First, we will use SpaceClaim to creating the geometry in 2D and then we will use Ansys Meshing and Ansys Fluent. You can download the geometr and mesh from this link.

Ansys Fluent – Fluidized Bed

A fluidized bed is a physical phenomenon occurring when a quantity of a solid particulate substance (usually present in a holding vessel) is placed under appropriate conditions to cause a solid/fluid mixture to behave as a fluid.

Ansys Fluent – Heat Transfer & Counter Flow

First we need to understand what the differences are between counter flow and parallel flow. As a brief description; the term refers to the relationship between the flow directions of the hot and cold fluids.

Ansys Fluent – Heat transfer through pipes

Heat transfer is a discipline of thermal engineering that concerns the generation, use, conversion, and exchange of thermal energy (heat) between physical systems. Heat transfer is classified into various mechanisms, such as thermal conduction, thermal convection, thermal radiation, and transfer of energy by phase changes.

Ansys Fluent – Drag Coefficient (Reference Values) Square 45° 2D

The drag coefficient is a number that aerodynamicists use to model all of the complex dependencies of shape, inclination, and flow conditions on aircraft drag. This equation is simply a rearrangement of the drag equation where we solve for the drag coefficient in terms of the other variables. The drag coefficient Cd is equal to the drag D divided by the quantity: density r times half the velocity V squared times the reference area A.
