Smoking Pipe Flow Simulation in OpenFOAM
With OpenFOAM, steady and transient simulations were carried out to visualize the incompressible airflow through a smoking pipe. For this project, a smoking pipe geometry (Rock Vapour Classic by Max de Arriz - https://grabcad.com/library/rock-vapor-classic-1) was used. The CAD model was repaired in Salome to make it suitable for fluid flow simulation. For mesh generation, a background mesh with pure hexahedron cells was created in Salome, and then with the snappyHexMesh tool, the pipe geometry was discretized into 370K cells. Simulations were carried out for steady state and transient cases with simpleFoam and pimpleFoam solvers respectively and the pressure and velocity contours were visualized in ParaView.
