3D Geometry for Pipe

3D Geometry for Pipe

3D Geometry for Pipe

I am using ANSYS for my dissertation to examine fluid flow through a 1.2m diameter 'U-shaped' pipe with 90 degree bends. Please could someone tell me how to get this geometry as I have tried everything I know but cannot. Knowing how to rotate in ANSYS would also help.

RE: 3D Geometry for Pipe

I don't think that axi-symmetric elements would help, as the jeometry of your problem does not contain an axis of symmetry. I'm afraid you should go through using 3D elements and do discretization in this basis.

RE: 3D Geometry for Pipe

I think U cant drow this profil in 3D dimention in ansys
but if you use nisa it can be done by extrude line and then
create path.
if U like to do it with ansys U must create this Geometry
by a cad program and save it in iges form.
