Özet

A numerical analysis of laminar flow through square-edged orifice has been studied for Reynolds number in the range 0 < Re-0 < 2000 with beta values varying from 0.2 to 0.8 and with t* values varying from 1/16 to 1. It is shown that the flow discharge coefficient gradually decreases when the orifice thickness/diameter ratio increases for a high porosity.
