    The bent pipe wall thinning phenomenon has been often found at the elbow of pipelines in the power engineering industry. Liquid droplet impingement (LDI) erosion could be regarded to be one of the major causes of unexpected troubles occasionally occurred in the inner bent pipe surface. In this paper, three-dimensional numerical simulations are conducted for a bent pipe. Typically the pipe diameter is 170mm and the bending angle is 90 degree, the mass flow rate of droplet is 4.5×10-3 kg/s with the velocity of 280m/s at the entry. The calculations employ a two-phase flow model. A computational fluid dynamic tool has been adopted by using one-way and two-way fluid-droplet coupled system in high Reynolds number regions. This computational fluid model is built up by incompressible Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes equations using different turbulent flow computational models and the SIMPLE algorithm, and the numerical droplet model adopts the Lagrangian approach. The momentum transfers between droplet and carrier fluid are calculated by using two different fluid-droplet coupled methods. The interactional force between carrier and droplet are taken into account by momentum transfer in Eulerian-Lagrangian approaches. Based on the carrier streamlines and droplet trajectories, the two-way calculation using the interactional momentum transfer calculations could be a more appropriate model to simulate the bent pipe wall thinning phenomena, the effects of droplet size are also demonstrated numerically. Finally, it is shown that turbulence models are not sensitive to the involved droplets.
