Cap (TL)

Perfectly insulated stop to fluid flow


Thermal Liquid/Elements


The Cap (TL) block represents a physical stop to liquid flow in a pipe network branch. The stop is perfectly insulated, preventing heat transfer with its surroundings.

You can also use this block to set the initial pressure and temperature at a node.

The Variables tab lets you set the priority and initial target value for Pressure and Temperature variables prior to simulation. For more information, see Set Priority and Initial Target for Block Variables.


The block has one thermal liquid conserving port.

Introduced in R2013b
