    Rubber Valve

    James Mark

      Hello guys,

       

      We are developing a product, and need to do some simulations to validate it.

       

      The product is like a small tube with a rubber valve that will work like a relief valve, i.e. it will deform after it reaches a set pressure allowing the fluid to pass through.

       

      Is it possible to simulate this with CFD? I've been looking for a way to simulate a elastic flow-induced deformation, but I still haven't come across anything useful so far.
