I am analyzing a 2D flow in a gradual contraction pipe. I am not sure if ansys can directly determine the head loss of the flow simulated.June 11, 2021 at 12:56 pmKarthik RAdministratorHello Please look at the following AIC examples and you will have an idea of how to estimate head loss in Fluent.
You should be able to download the case and data files, and the results PDF should guide you in these calculations.
June 12, 2021 at 5:28 amEzzadSubscriberHi In the examples you shared, it does not show how head loss is determined.
June 14, 2021 at 10:52 amRobAnsys EmployeeWhat is head loss? I know but explain below.
June 14, 2021 at 11:38 amEzzadSubscriberMinor head loss or loss of pressure due to pipe fitting in a pipe flow.
June 14, 2021 at 12:54 pmRobAnsys EmployeeOK, and what would you do to find that in an experiment?
June 14, 2021 at 3:14 pmEzzadSubscriberJust find the pressure at the inlet and outlet in Ansys. Then find the pressure difference.
June 15, 2021 at 1:48 pmRobAnsys EmployeeCorrect, so you can use that to get the head loss. There's not a specific function but you can use Custom Field Functions (not as easy as Excel) and Expressions will do the job but won't report back to the solver (you'll need to open & evaluate the expression) if you can't add it to an output parameter.
