The CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics or numerical flow simulation) is used in practical Application of the calculation of temperature, velocity and pressure distribution. As a rule, this is much cheaper and quicker to implement than corresponding attempts, e.g. B. in wind tunnels.
In the following, typical industries, topics and tasks are listed in which calculation and simulation have established themselves as tools. If you cannot find your topic here, please talk to us!
- Flow around systems and vehicles
- Whether car, ship or airplane - the lower the flow resistance, the lower the necessary drive power. Therefore, the optimization of the external geometry is a typical task for the CFD simulation
- Fluid bodies are less mechanically stressed
- Calculation of vibrations through separation effects in order to exclude these effects from the outset.
- Determination of time-dependent or stationary loads as an input variable for subsequent strength calculations
- Flow in components / mixing processes
- Calculation of efficiency and pressure losses in pumps, valves, heat exchangers, fittings, pipes, etc.
- Calculation of cavitation, e.g. B. on impellers or propeller blades. This is used to optimize speed profiles, thereby avoiding damage
- Calculation of mixing processes, e.g. B. in agitators or exhaust systems
- Optimierung der Geometrie z. B. von Abfüllanlagen, um gleiche Strömungsverhältnisse herzustellen
- Filling processes in the field of pressure vessels
- Heating and cooling processes / temperature distribution
- Calculation of heat distribution in industrial systems
- Design of heat exchangers or chillers
- Cooling of power electronics, heat generation in batteries, etc.
