The gas flow inside a reciprocating compressor is the result of the oscillating piston motion and the opening and closing of the valves. Above all, the interaction of pressure waves with the valve motion determines the present flow patterns. This thesis provides an accurate but simple numerical model capable of calculating internal flows and valve dynamics in a reciprocating compressor. The considered computational domain extends from the valves of the suction side to the pressure chamber of… CONTINUE READING
