SWING CHECK VALVES

MAIN FEATURES

  • Selection of an unlimited number of valves for each analysis
  • Description of each valve through data supplied from manufacturers (e.g. shape, geometry, mass, weight, etc.)
  • Computation of characteristic curves (i.e. forces versus inclination, torques versus inclination, velocity versus inclination, discharge versus inclination, etc. for any given head) for the full range of operation according to hydraulic laws
  • Identification of stable working conditions (i.e. equilibrium between positive torque and negative torque, balance between inflow and outflow)
  • Comparison of analytical results with original data from manufacturers (e.g. head versus discharge, etc.)
  • Visualisation of results
  • Suitable for designing and testing

OPTIONS FOR IO OPERATIONS

  • Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet Files (xlsx)

OPTIONS FOR GRAPHICS  

  • Standard Image Formats (jpeg, tiff)
  • Portable Document Format (pdf)

TEST CASES

Figure 1, Figure 2 and Figure 3 show some simulation results comparing analytical results referring to a specific valve loaded with different approaching heads.

Figure 1. Torques (Y-Axis) versus inclination (X-Axis) for any given valve and approaching head.

Figure 2. Velocity (Y-Axis) versus inclination (X-Axis) for any given valve and approaching head.

Figure 3. Discharge (Y-Axis) versus inclination (X-Axis) for any given valve and approaching head.
