Abstract

A CFD (computational fluid dynamics) model has been developed to evaluate the effects of particle concentration on the erosion–corrosion of the inner surfaces of a circular pipe of 90° bend at room temperatures. The relative intensity of erosion and corrosion around the pipe geometry results in transitions between various erosion–corrosion regimes, for a given inlet particle concentration. The results indicate that the corrosion-dominated regime at the pipe bend is reduced with an increase in particle concentration. Typical results from the model are shown illustrating how this 3D mapping method can be used to model parameters such as particle concentration on the erosion–corrosion regimes over the surface.
