Non-Return Valve Project Description

A non-return valve is simulated in this project, which has been done by the CFD simulation method with the help of Ansys Fluent software. These valves move the fluid flow in only one direction and prevent it from moving in the opposite direction. In some industrial applications, the pressure at the outlet may increase relative to the inlet and cause the flow to return, and this factor can be harmful to us, so in these cases, we use this type of valve. In this simulation, dynamic mesh and one DOF rotation capability are used. Input speed up to 0.4 seconds 1 m/s and then almost zero (0.000001m/s) is defined using UDF.

Geometry & Mesh

The two-dimensional geometry of this project has been produced with SpaceClaim software.

The length of the calculation area is 26 cm, and the width is 5 cm.

The meshing of this project has been done with Ansys Meshing software, and the type of elements is unstructured. Also, the total number of elements is 61580.

Non-Return Valve Results

At the end of the simulation, we see that the valve opens up for 0.4 seconds due to the high speed and kinetic energy of the water. From this moment on, when the flow velocity is also zero, the valve starts to close. The spring force defined for the valve also accelerates the closing of the valve and does not allow the flow to return to the inlet. We can also see the input speed diagram in terms of time defined by UDF. The graph of the force applied to the valve is also drawn over time.

    I’m impressed with the dynamic mesh application! Can you explain how the one DOF (Degree Of Freedom) rotation affects the simulation?

      MR CFD Support

      In the simulation of the non-return valve, the one Degree Of Freedom (DOF) rotation allows the valve disc to rotate around a single axis, which is crucial for accurately representing the valve’s operational behavior. When the fluid flow pushes against the valve, the DOF setting ensures that the valve can only move in the intended manner, hence preventing fluid backflow. This also enables the simulation to capture the dynamic interaction between the flow and the moving part of the valve—such as the opening and closing movements—under varying flow conditions.

    I’m impressed with the detail in this simulation! The use of a dynamic mesh for a non-return valve seems thorough. What factors were taken into account for the strength of the spring, to ensure it responded accurately once flow velocity was reduced to zero?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In defining spring strength for the one DOF rotation in the simulation, we considered both the kinetic energy of the flowing water and the desired response time of the valve closure. Accurate spring parameters ensure that when the flow velocity drops, the valve quickly responds and shuts without allowing any backward flow, effectively replicating the mechanical behavior of a real non-return valve.
