The occurrence of cavitation negatively affects the performance of hydraulic systems. The impairments range from increased noise levels to severe and life-limiting wear of machine parts. Cavitation in hydraulic systems can be prevented by early integration of one-dimensional fluid power simulation software into the design process.
In this webinar, FLUIDON’s piping expert “RohrLEx” explains how cavitating flows can be simulated with the updated component models of DSHplus. The improved models enable the user to analyze all relevant types of cavitation – vapor cavitation, gas cavitation and pseudo-cavitation – as well as the associated phenomenon of gas bubble transport.
To illustrate the workflow when simulating a cavitation-endangered and/or gas conveying system with DSHplus, two exemplary cases are presented and discussed.
- What types of cavitation can be distinguished and how are they modeled?
- How is the transport of gas bubbles modeled?
- Which fluid properties must be known in order to perform cavitation calculations?
- How are cavitation-endangered hydraulic systems simulated with DSHplus? The webinar covers the relevant steps from model set-up to result analysis.
- What conclusions can be drawn from the simulation results?
Who Should Attend?
The webinar offers valuable insights into the simulation of cavitating flows for any engineer involved dealing with pipelines, hoses or piping systems, irrespective of the material, cross-section shape or size, pipe length or type of fluid. The target audience ranges from fluid power engineers to professionals from Automotive Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Marine Engineering and Manufacturing to Biomedical Technology.
