|Keywords||CFD, control valve, hydrodynamics, pressure drop characteristics|
|Programs in use||ANSYS/CFX|
In the current work a full-scale CFD model of the control valve considering all its geometrical features was developed. As a result of CFD simulation the distributions of velocity and pressure within throttling cavity of the control valve were obtained. The relationships of pressure drop characteristics to the flow rate and valve piston positions were calculated.
