Performance assessment of a Peristaltic Pump

Posted by Nikolaos Mavrodontis on May 22, 2020 11:37:02 AM

In this blog post, we will be showcasing a fully coupled fluid structure interaction (FSI) analysis, of a peristaltic roller pump. This study will focus on assessing the performance of a peristaltic pump, under operation. This co-simulation analysis, will solve for both the structural and fluid domains' unknown quantities, during 1 revolution of the rotating mechanism of the pump.

This is an example of a challenging application, in which numerical modelling and computer simulations can provide a lot of insight and value.

The aspects we want to evaluate in this digital model are; determining the volume flow-rate for a given rotation speed, assessing contact stress areas on the tube, and determining the torque output for the given rpm.
