fluid-structure interaction; discharge valve; p-v graph
Â Abstract: In this paper, a 3-D fluid-structure interaction model was established to investigate the working process of the small reciprocating refrigeration compressors. According to the numerical calculation, the working process of the small reciprocating refrigeration compressor, the motion of valve and the impact velocity and the contact stress of discharge valve and suction valve were given. Experiments on a small reciprocating refrigeration compressor for testing the p-v graph were carried out .Experimental results agree well with the numeric model. The result provides a guidance to research and design the small reciprocating refrigeration compressors.
