PyFluent to calculate pressure drop

    • Merel Meulendijks

      Hi Guys,

      I have a question. I installed PyFluent (for python). My goal is to run a simulation in order to create a plot of the pressure as a function of z in this geometry using PyFluent:

      The mesh is created as follows (note that I also want to do this in PyFluent instead of in the Ansys workbench), using an inflation mesh (total thickness, 0.6 mm):

      For the simulation, the boundary conditions are as follows:

      the model settings are viscous laminar and steady state. the velocity at the inlet is 0.25 m/s. the pressure at the outlet is 0. The fluid must be blood instead of air with a density of 1060 kg/m^3 and a viscosity of 4e-3. I want to run the simulation for 200 iterations. As already said, the output must be a chart of the pressure as a function of the z-coordinate.


      Is there someone who can help me do this? Your help is really appreciated.
