Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The paper is devoted to numerical simulation of space effects appearing with flow separation in pipeline junctions. Gas and oil flows through T-bends are considered. Two- parametric turbulence models are analyzed, among them k-ω is chosen. Results of numerical simulation are analyzed and explained, practical recommendations on appropriate t-bend geometry are given.
