The article analyzes the results of numerical simulations of pulsatile flow in a square channel with a 90° bend using Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD). The simulations of laminar steady and unsteady flow obtained by ANSYS Fluent commercial system were used as input for modal decomposition. Several regimes for different values of individual parameters (stationary flow component, ) were simulated. Not only energy-related modes but also modes significant from the viewpoint of energy dissipation. Other evaluated modes are the modes corresponding to the pulsatile flow frequency and the modes reflecting the flow separation at the bend.
