Description: ABSTRACT The paper presents a numerical investigation of the 3D inviscid and incompressible swirling flow in a pipe with constant diameter. In order to evaluate the influence of different parameters (numerical schemes, grid refinement, velocity-pressure coupling methods, outlet boundary conditions) the 3D Euler computations were performed. The 3D computational domain corresponds to a pipe with constant diameter. The objective of this study is to assess the numerical set-up for swirling flows. In order to validate our methodology and to estimate the accuracy of the numerical results, we have performed extensive comparisons with available experimental data.
