CFD-simulation and torque calculation

CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) or Fluid Mechanics is flow simulation of fluid and gases combined thermal calculations. Primarily, we use ANSYS CFX for CFD calculation.

We perform simulations for determining air resistance, laminar and turbulent flow profiles, flow rates, pressure losses and load reactions, which can then be used as boundary conditions for mechanical Finite Element calculations. CFD is also used for mixing and separation processes and for thermal heat transfer. Flow simulation and thermal simulation can be combined e.g. by optimizing heat exchangers etc.

One of the main benefits of using CFD simulation is that you get big savings on test setup, prototypes, and laboratory tests.

Practical examples

Examples of areas, where we can use CFD in the development process:

  • Heat exchangers
  • Ventilation
  • Heat pumps
  • Determination of CV-value
  • Cooling
  • Valves
  • Nozzles
  • Pumps
  • Agitators
  • Mixers
  • Separators
