I modeled a line in CAESAR II that is not a practical one but it is a conceptual one(See attachment). Can you guide me?
I modeled a simple line with a reducer at the middle of two elbows in CAESAR II. As we know, after a reducer, the pressure of the fluid drops. Therefore [pressure thrust at downstream elbow(=P2*A2)] + [pressure at the reducer*the reducer projection] is lower than [pressure thrust at upstream elbow(=P1*A1)] and Unbalanced pressure thrust causes movement of the piping in -X direction. But CAESAR II shows no movement in X direction. After I turned on Bourdon effect, CAESAR II showed negligible movement in +X direction.
Do you agree with me that the Unbalanced pressure thrust causes movement in -X direction?
Why does CAESAR II gives these results?
As I told before it is not a practical model.
The reducer size:78"*42"
