NUMERICAL MODELING OF UNSTABLE FLOWS IN CONDUCTS WITH VARIABLE GEOMETRY
Article dans une revue avec comité de lecture
Changes in the system flow of a fluid in a conduct often cause sudden changes in pressure and give rise to so-called unstable flows. So, the study of the phenomenon of unstable flows aims to determine ifthe pressure in a system is within the prescribed limits, following a perturbation of the flow. In the objective of studying the rangeof a water hammer, an examination of variations in velocity or flow and pressure resulting from inappropriate operation of the hydraulic system is made. This study presents a numerical modeling of the phenomenon of instable flows in load conducts with variable geometries. The characteristic method is used to solve the governing equations. Thanks to the AFT Impulse industrial program, very interesting and very practical numerical resultsare obtainedto describe the phenomenon of instable flows inconducts with variable geometry. And to more illustrate the graphical presentation two cases are graphically overlay for each of the two types of models (slow closing and rapid closingof the valve).
