article focuses on the hydrodynamic analysis of U-Pipe using finite volume approach. A two dimensional model of U-Pipe has been developed and the hydrodynamic performance characteristics has been examined and compared with the same length of straight pipe. The flow separation and boundary layer separation has also been examined for wide range of Reynolds number. At the bend section the friction factor has examined and found that the inner and outer surface has un-symmetrical pattern and at turbulent intensity also varies in comparison with straight pipe. The obtained finite volume results have been compared with the published data and the result shows good agreement.
