Flow simulation makes the fine difference between mass and class
Flow simulation (CFD) opens you up to the world of fluid mechanics
Fluid mechanics plays a role in virtually every area of product development. Powerful CFD can help to considerably reduce the effort involved in product creation and contribute to faster development of higher quality products.
Efficient flow simulation
CFD has evolved to become a very powerful tool thanks to current options and advancements in computer technology and high-performance computing. The steps that need to be taken, such as meshing, parameter entry, and evaluation, can now be completed in user-friendly, clear input masks.
Master flow – fluid dynamics
CFD is a tried-and-tested tool for the analysis of flow processes, heat transfer problems, and chemical reactions. In addition, CFD also offers reliable simulation of multiphase flow processes (e.g., water and air in a single tank) or processes involving sand, dust, or droplets. Virtually all leading manufacturers of turbomachinery use CFD to help enhance their competitiveness. The time to market is drastically reduced and the quality of the products can be improved at the same time.
Improved product understanding
The numerical flow simulation allows insights into systems which are - if at all - very complex or only locally possible within the framework of experiments. CFD allows for detailed analysis of temperatures, pressures, flow velocities, substance concentrations, etc. at any point. The resulting understanding of the processes can help to accelerate development processes, reduce costs and make products more reliable. CFD enables users to simulate numerous variants and aspects on the computer, thereby reducing the number of physical prototypes required.
Closeness to reality counts
Turbulence is the movement of fluids involving eddies over a wide range of size scales. These are crucial to ensuring high accuracy of results and must not be ignored. Ansys CFD offers a wide range of proven and validated turbulence models.
Specific industry applications
The simulation of turbomachinery is a typical area of application for numerical flow simulation. To be successful, it’s important that the product group is homogeneous, both in terms of physics and the relevant simulation methods.
Multiphase flows are common. They can be found in nature, in everyday life, in technology, or industry. We come across them in injection processes, when filling or emptying containers, in the sloshing of liquids in tanks, and when coating/wetting surfaces with liquids, etc.
Thermal management means cooling, heating, tempering. Virtually every component, machine, and plant has its own unique challenges and issues. Cooling is something virtually every manufacturer has to grapple with.
