The use of kinetic energy of fluids has been intelligently employed over the years for performing various functions in different engineering processes. One
of the common applications is the functioning of aeroplanes. Furthermore, the use of this energy has been extended to applications in devices like
turbomachinery, valves, etc. Valves are of utmost importance for the safe operation of industries as these manage the flow of fluids. Energy plays a vital
role in every aspect and thereby valves are also developed to attain optimum working capability. The principle of kinetic energy of fluids forms the basis of
Automatic Shutoff Valve (ASV). The energy associated with the moving fluid helps in performing the functioning of the valve. This paper investigates the
performance of ASV using CFD. The performance analysis is based on the flow coefficient of the valve, pressure drop across the valve and torque
generated on the closing member.
