Venturi tube plays a very important role in different fields of engineering. It has a number of industrial applications in which its design is an essential factor. Venturi tube used in gas measurement applications provides an accurate critical gas flow measurement. There is a need to design Venturi tube with an effective analytical tool or software. In this work, two parameters: pressure drop and velocity discharge nozzle were analyzed using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The results obtained were then analyzed for accurate determination of the Venturi tube's discharge coefficient, Cd. It was found that there is less than 1% difference between the average values of the discharge coefficient obtained from the numerical analysis and experimental results.
