  title={Hydrodynamic Simulation for Intake Valve of Reciprocating Compressor},
  author={Zhang Qin and Man Lai Zhang and Zhi Hong Zhou},
The aim of the present paper is to simulate the work process of intake valve in reciprocating compressor.To understand the flow, temperature characters and valve plate movement, the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used to simulate the process of expansion and suction. In each time step, the fluid motion equation is iteratively solved to obtain the pressure distribution on the valve plate, and the valve plate moving can been determined by solving the valve plate motion equation at the end… CONTINUE READING
