Porous Network Simulator - FTPM (Collaboration with Univ. of Oklahoma) 3D Monte Carlo networks from normal, beta, or empirical distribution (pore size pdf) Coordination Number (1, 2, 3) number of pores entering and leaving a junction ± 90˚ Projection on the xy plane of a 3D network that has 200 entry points at x=0, porosity equal to 10% and a range of ±60˚ relative to the x axis and ±30˚ relative to the y axis.
Design and Analysis of networks depends on knowledge of flow and energy losses in arbitrary branches. No systematic studies to generalize these bifurcations Flow Network Analysis ACS – PRF Grant to Simulate and perform Experiments for Laminar Flow in Bifurcations
