COMSOL Tutorial: Simulating a Closing Gate Valve Part 1

Learn how to model a 3D gate valve that closes and redirects pipe flow to a different branch in a Y-fitting. COMSOL is able to handle highly nonlinear materials (such as fluid viscosity, in this case) to emulate the gate itself and thereby avoid the numerical issues that arise as the topology changes when the valve closes. Part 1 out of a 2-part gate valve simulation tutorial.
