Comparative study on the orifice induced velocity field /

Çelebi, Sonat
Orifices are important devices used in many hydraulic engineering applications. Therefore, investigation of flow characteristics upstream of orifices is a quite important phenomenon. One of the solution approaches is the potential flow solution. In this st udy, two different potential flow solutions presented by Shammaa et. al. and Bryant et. al are investigated and compared with the solution obtained by using computational fluid dy namics software, FLUENT. Both inviscid and volume of fluid (VOF) methods are used for the FLUENT solution. Solutions for the orifice induced velocity field upstream of the orifice are presented.
