`ThickEdgedOrifice` | Thicked edged orifice flow model |

Thicked edged orifice flow model

This component models a **thick edged orifice** with sharp corners in the overall flow regime for incompressible and single-phase fluid flow through an arbitrary shaped cross sectional area (square, circular, etc.) considering influence of surface roughness. It is expected that also compressible fluid flow can be handled up to about Ma = 0.3. It is assumed that neither mass nor energy is stored in this component.
In the model basically a function is called to compute the mass flow rate as a function
of pressure loss for a thick edged orifice. Also the inverse of this function is defined, and a tool
might use this inverse function instead, in order to avoid the solution of a nonlinear equation.

The details of the model are described in the documentation of the underlying function.

Type | Name | Default | Description |
---|---|---|---|

`Boolean` | `allowFlowReversal` | `system.allowFlowReversal` | = true to allow flow reversal, false restricts to design direction (port_a -> port_b) |

`AbsolutePressure` | `dp_start` | `0.01 * system.p_start` | Guess value of dp = port_a.p - port_b.p |

`MassFlowRate` | `m_flow_start` | `system.m_flow_start` | Guess value of m_flow = port_a.m_flow |

`MassFlowRate` | `m_flow_small` | `if system.use_eps_Re then system.eps_m_flow * system.m_flow_nominal else system.m_flow_small` | Small mass flow rate for regularization of zero flow |

`Boolean` | `show_T` | `true` | = true, if temperatures at port_a and port_b are computed |

`Boolean` | `show_V_flow` | `true` | = true, if volume flow rate at inflowing port is computed |

`Geometry` | `geometry` | Geometry of thick edged orifice |

Type | Name | Description |
---|---|---|

`FluidPort_a` | `port_a` | Fluid connector a (positive design flow direction is from port_a to port_b) |

`FluidPort_b` | `port_b` | Fluid connector b (positive design flow direction is from port_a to port_b) |
