Ori Cav  Orifice model for laminar/turbulent flow possibly with cavitation with volumes at the ports

The Ori Cav component describes the laminar/turbulent flow through an orifice possibly with cavitation. The pressure drop is modeled as in the component Ori Cav No States. Volumes may be added at the ports. 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].

Related Components

Name

Description

Lam Res

Resistance with laminar flow and volumes at the ports.

Orifice

Recommended component. 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

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

Sim Ori

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

Metering Ori

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

Two Orifices

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

Restrictions[Basic]

Differences between basic models are shown by a figure.
