Functional Assessment of an Anti-Abrasive Elbow for Particle-Laden Gas Flows
The characteristic of flow fields in elbow has been numerically studied to develop anti-abrasive elbows, which is typically equipped in coal-burning power plants, for conveying highvelocity particle-laden fluids. Specially, a vortex flow field in the pipe experiencing particle abrasion was formed and particle flow simulation was conducted. The governing equations for threedimensional, turbulent flow fields were discretized by FVM and solved by the SIMPLE algorithm.
