What does TACITE ?TACITE is able to solve transient two-phase flow in pipes. It is dedicated to oil engeneering.
TACITE allows vertical, oblic and horizontal flow computation.
TACITE uses a 1D instationary model. The mesh is composed of adjacent cylinders (cells) forming the pipe.
TACITE simulates dispersed, stratified, annular, and intermittent flows. Hydrodynamic transient as well as thermal transient can be performed. Influence of pipe equipments such as valves, relief valves, pumps can be taken into acount.
A simplified composition with N(N=2..12) pseudo-components is used to describe the fluid. It incomes to the user to specify components caracteristics in order to represent the real fluid.
Introducing to TACITESince no source code is available ,TACITE 4.009 is a black box because composed of only one executable file named tacite.out.
The paramters transmission is done with editing ASCII files. After a computation TACITE output is composed of some ASCII or binary files reporting :-The simulation parameters files
- The results files
- The restart file
The file naming use a generic name defined by the user followed by specific extentions . We use SimName as the example generic name.
