Abstract

This paper demonstrates a new approach to modelling pipe and duct flows within a System CFD framework in which “particles” in the flow are tracked and 1D-flow equations are solved in the fluid reference fame. This approach can be used to model a variety of physical scenarios that are not possible using traditional system CFD approaches including: Batched slurry flows; Oscillating column in a cavitating vertical pipe; and Pipette flows.
