Simulation and flow analysis through a straight pipe

Sambit, S (2014) Simulation and flow analysis through a straight pipe. BTech thesis.



In this study, the frictional losses in a pipe due to shear stress produced in a pipe due to viscosity of fluids has been discussed. Pipeline system in India is a vast network and minimizing losses through these pipes can contribute a lot to the country. This paper contains flow analysis of different fluids in a pipe. The simulations were done using ANSYS FLUENT CFD 14.0 software to observe pressure drops between inlet and outlet of a pipe. Pressure Difference and frictional coefficient were calculated using Darcy-Weisbach equation. The model used in ANSYS FLUENT CFD 14.0 is a 3 dimensional model through which different fluids were made to pass through and subsequent analysis were done. The paper also includes comparison of results obtained from practical methods, theoretical methods and ANSYS. The flow is considered to be turbulent and open channel flow.
