Var Lam Res No States  Resistance with laminar flow, variable conductance

The Var Lam Res No States component describes the laminar flow through a resistance with variable conductance. The flow rate of the resistance is given by

q=GΔp

Variables used in the above equation

q

Flow rate m3s

G

Conductance, input at signal connector as commandedConductance m3sPa

Δp

Pressure drop across resistance Pa

Equations to calculate the conductance G are given in the manual for several components. A conductance of G = 4.167e-13 m3sPa leads to a flow rate of 1 lminute at 4e7 Pa. As the critical Reynolds number depends on the component, there is no check whether the flow is actually laminar or turbulent.

Name

Description

Lam Res No States

Resistance with laminar flow.

Orifice No States

The component, based on the loss coefficient K, describes both flow regimes: laminar for very small Reynolds numbers and turbulent for higher Reynolds numbers (default model).

Ori Poly No States

The component describes both flow regimes, using an interpolation polynomial.

Ori Cav No States

Orifice component checking for cavitation.

Sim Ori No States

Simple textbook component, using a constant discharge coefficient. It is valid for turbulent flow only; severe numerical problems for laminar flow.

Metering Ori No States

Metering Orifice (that is, model Orifice No States with variable diameter).

Two Orifices

Two orifices in series, one with variable the other with fixed flow area.

Orifice N

Same as Orifice No States, but with the equations rearranged to compute Δp for given q.
