I want to make some model using Hydraulic Resistance library
This model consists of cross pipe
But, I can't find any cross pipe component in Hydraulic Resistance library.
How can I make an HR cross pipe model?
Could I use two T-junction model instead of one cross pipe model?
p.s. Thanks In Advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
ah.... I was a bit too quick with my intrerpreation of a cross pipe ^^
Indeed there is no submodel of such a junction with pressure losses.
For this, I would start with a simple/ideal 4-port node from the hydraumlic library and compare it with other alternatives such as chaining Tee junctions. For my simple test-case the differences in flow rate could be considered acceptable - your call!
Though I have to say I don't like the succession of Tee junctions as it's not symmetrical and will depend on flow direction. Another option could be to consider a central volume and four fixed discrete losses at each port.
