Secondary flows in a strong curved converging channel

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A three-dimensional model is developed to evaluate the effect of secondary flow generated from strongly bent duct profiles and turbulent flow of high Reynolds number on fibre movement in a bent channel. The fibre configuration is more complex in a three-dimensional model with the introduction of secondary flow. The strategies of mesh generation for threedimensional problems are discussed. The flow characteristic in the transfer-channel of a rotor spinning machine is predicted.
