Industrial Fluid Dynamics is the most widely used application for CFD and encompasses the calculation of mass flows, pressure drops, heat transfer rates, mixing rates, temperature distributions, species concentrations and particle suspensions for industrial processes and equipment. This data can be used directly for design purposes or as in input to a detailed stress analysis.
A wide variety of industrial plant and machinery such as mixers, separators, combustors, furnaces, heat exchangers, condensers and valves all require detailed fluid dynamic design in order to operate efficiently. Modern CFD methods provide design engineers with crucial design insight; frequently exceeding that which is possible with experimental investigations. This level of detailed analysis allows engineers to fully understand the flow and thermal phenomena dominating the performance of their products and hence make credible design decisions.
CFD analysis offers the ability to conduct comprehensive, automated, multi-point optimisation of designs. This process allows engineers to automatically optimise a design to a given set of performance parameters and can be used to minimise pressure drops, or maximise mass flow or heat transfer rates to given design targets.
