VECTIS is a 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solver specialized in vehicular and engine applications.

This example models fluid in two pipes which meet at a junction. The fluid used in this example is air, and the two pipes have diameters of 25 mm and 30 mm respectively, joining a larger pipe of 40 mm diameter.

Simulation Code | Ricardo Vectis 2014.1 |

Analysis Type | CFD |

Description | This Ricardo Vectis example job models a pipe junction. It is run in 3 phases. Phase 2 creates a mesh from the geometry. Phase 4 performs the domain decomposition into 8 parts. Phase 5 runs the solver using an unlimited rdm license. |

Suggested Hardware | Nickel / 8 cores |

Command | phase2 pipej.mesh; |

Estimated Run Time | 3 minutes |
