Fields of Application

When it comes to fluid mechanics, some people might only think of aerodynamics, driving and flying. But that's not all - with the help of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), practically all questions concerning the most diverse fluids (liquids, gases, mixtures) can be dealt with.

Internal and External Flow

Heating, Cooling, Thermal Dissipation

Rheological flows

Internal flow like in pipes, ducts and valves, as well as external flow around structures, extensions or entire vehicles can be simulated. Of interest are pressure losses, recirculation areas, drag and buoyancy coefficients as well as fluid forces acting on structures.

Thermal Management / Heat Management: Whenever phenomena like heating, cooling or thermal dissipation play a role, CFD can gain substantial insight. Convective heat transfer between fluids and solids as well as radiation and heat conduction can be accounted for. 

Rheological flow: highly viscous or viscoelastic materials as found in rubber or plastics processing, in glass production, or also in food technology, can be simulated with Ansys Polyflow. Manufacturing processes such as extrusion or blow molding can thus be represented in the computer.

Multiphase Flows, Transitions

Reactive flows

Simulation Accelerates Digital Transformation

Whenever several different liquids and / or gases flow simultaneously, we are speaking of multiphase flow. Typical applications are filling or emptying processes (e.g., tanks, beverage cartons), coating processes, or also smoke and particle flows. Phenomena like condensation, evaporation or boiling and vaporization can be taken into account as well.

Ansys Fluent allows the simulation of reactive flows – i.e., mixing and transport of chemical substances (with or without chemical reactions taking place simultaneously). Typical applications can be found, for example, in the chemical industry, in rocket technology, in power generation or also in the area of fuel cells and batteries.
