Coupled Analysis of Flow and Stress in a Pipe
Application ID: 77981
In this tutorial model, the flow in a pipe with a bend is computed using the Pipe Flow interface. The computed fluid load is used as input to a stress analysis in the Pipe Mechanics interface. Gravity loads from the pipe and fluid are also taken into account.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
