Rigid Line  Losses of a rigid line as a function of Reynolds number

The RigidLine component describes the laminar/turbulent flow through a circular, smooth rigid line; that is, it  calculates the flow rate q as a function of pressure drop dp. There are two flow modes:

0 < Re < ReCrit

laminar (Hagen-Poiseuille)

ReCrit < Re

turbulent (Blasius)

The functions q = q(Re) and q = q(dp) are unique. The geometric volume of the lumped volumes at each port is computed from the parameters length and area. Use the modifier(s)

VolumeA(port_A(p(start=1e5,fixed=true)))

and/or

VolumeB(port_A(p(start=1e5,fixed=true)))

to set the initial condition(s) for the pressure of the lumped volume(s) [Pa].
