Abstract

Different methods for the evaluation of the flow forces in conical poppet valves are analyzed. The equation derived from the conservation of the fluid momentum is contrasted with a formulation obtained from the Bernoulli's equation and with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations performed through two commercial codes, PumpLinx and Flow Simulation. Three different poppet angles and two flow directions are analyzed. In some operating conditions, a significant difference was found between the analytical formulation and the outcomes of the CFD simulations in case of reverse flow.
