EASL - CFD Analysis of Water Flowing Through a Pipe Bypass

EASL was selected by the client to perform a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis of water flow in a pipe. The analysis was conducted to observe the behaviour of the fluid present in certain sections of the pipework, named the dead-legs. These are the sections of the pipe that effectively become dead ends for the flow after the closing of the primary valve. It was required to know if and when all the water remaining in the dead-legs joins the flow. Our CFD experts were able to tackle this problem following a thorough analysis of a fluid simulation, creating visual representations of the flow such as contours of velocity, pressure, and turbulent kinetic energy, as well as tracking particles to capture the flow of the fluid through the dead-legs
