Numerical Simulation and Analysis for the Flow Field of the Main Nozzle in an Air-Jet Loom Based on FLUENT
Due to the complicated structure and the high speed turbulence, it is difficult to measure and analyze the flow field characteristics of the main nozzle by experimental methods, naturally, some software such as FLUENT become a powerful tool to perform the numerical simulation for flow field of the main nozzle of an air-jet loom. The distribution of the airflow velocity and static pressure along axial and radial direction in main nozzle were investigated. The results indicated that the airflow in the main nozzle was extremely complex, its velocity in throat could be sonic and a certain backflow was produced. The research results will play an important role on the structural parameters optimization and energy conservation.
