Artificial Intelligence (AI) is used to create a generative design based software that can help us design multi-objective optimized valves. The software uses AI to instantly generate a valve design for a desired flow performance requirement.

CCTech Research started investigating how we may use ML in the area of Design of Mechanical Systems. One of the key application we were particularly interested is in Control Valve industry. Control Valve Performer - a cloud app developed by simulationHub team is already helping valve manufacturers get quick results. Given a 3D model, our app provides the flow performance parameters such as flow coefficient Cv, Coefficient of Hydrodynamic Torque Cdt in less than an hour. Although this is a drastic time saving over traditional CFD (which could take a week) and experimental techniques (a month), one still yearns for a solution that could predict the flow performance in less than 5 seconds. Once this kind of solution becomes available to the designer, he will do away with excel sheet formula based design basis calculation.

Torque is an essential parameter in the design of rotary valves such as butterfly valves, ball valves, plug valves etc. It plays an important role in the actuator selection in case of motor operated valves. Hydrodynamic torque or simply dynamic torque has a significant share of the total torque the valve shaft has to undergo during valve operation. Understanding the effect of dynamic torque and its variation with the opening percentage of the valve can give designers a better insight into crucial design improvements for torque reduction in their valve design.

Control Valve Performer (CVP) is a CFD application that runs from your web browser. It predicts the performance of control valves using fluid flow simulations. The app predicts the coefficient of hydrodynamic torque for all the opening percentages for your control valve design and generates a curve illustrating the nature of variation of the torque coefficient.

In this webinar, understand how simulationHub helps in predicting and analyzing the hydrodynamic torque in different types of rotary valves.

Understanding flow through control valve is essential in optimum valve design. CFD helps in predicting the valve performance and gives good insight into the flow physics. This involves a series of CFD simulations for different valve openings (minimum to maximum) and calculates the Cv value at each condition. With the emergence of cloud computing, virtual testing of designs and performance optimization have become possible through cloud-based CFD app, with a reduced need of producing physical prototypes.

Control Valve Performer (CVP) is a cloud-based app for predicting the performance of control valves using fluid flow simulations. The app provides web browser-based graphical interface that allows designers to perform flow simulations on their valve geometry and compute valve flow coefficient curves Cv & Kv and coefficient of hydrodynamic torque Cdt.

In this webinar, you will be introduced to the capabilities and applications of Control Valve Performer app for control valve performance simulation.
