## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I am currently trying to do a project for my final year in engineering.I have not been able to find any software thats helping me in simulating and obtaining results for pressure drop through an orifice plate.

i have tried the fluid option in ansys v10 dinn't understand how to use it properly its giving stress concentration due to fluid pressure than pressure drop through the orifice plate

is there any open source software that will help,ANSYS 12 and 13 are too costly

orifice plate:

1}inlet dia is 1cm

2]outlet is 0.5 cm

3]inlet pressure is Atmospheric 101.3 Kpa

4]inlet velocity is 30km/hr or 8.3m/sec

i need to find outlet pressure,velocity and temperature drop from inlet to outlet

theoretically Bernoulli's principal can be used but either V(outlet) or p(outlet) is required

any help is appreciated,

THank you :)
