ESDU CFD-BPG 09010
CFD Best Practice Guidelines for modelling friction losses and flow characteristics in straight pipes.
Abstract:ESDU CFD-BPG 09010 provides the Best Practice Guidelines recommended by ESDU for the CFD modelling of friction losses and flow characteristics in circular straight pipes with smooth walls. These Guidelines are based on the extensive ESDU CFD validation studies described in ESDU TN 08008 and ESDU TN 08009. They may be used in the modelling of industrial pipe-flow applications and for more general CFD applications where straight pipes are used to set inlet and outlet boundary conditions. This CFD Guide may be used with any finite volume Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) CFD code with low-Reynolds-number turbulence modelling and correlation-based 'bypass' transition modelling capabilities.
