Published In: Scientific Bulletin of the “Politehnica” University of Timisoara, Transactions on Mechanics, Tom 50(64), pp. 87-96
Description: ABSTRACT This paper presents a numerical investigation of the 3D turbulent and incompressible swirling flow in a constant diameter pipe. In order to evaluate the influence of different turbulence models the 3D computations were performed. The 3D computational domain corresponds to a pipe with constant diameter. Two turbulence models implemented in FENFLOSS and one model in FLUENT are investigated. In order to validate our methodology and to assess the accuracy of the numerical results, extensive comparisons with available experimental data are performed. The vorticity and the helicity are used to analyze the flow field.
