COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS
SOLVING COMPLEX FLUID PROBLEMS VIRTUALLY
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a cutting-edge technique for predicting and analysing complex fluid behaviour in motion. By utilising powerful computer simulations and physics-based mathematical equations, CFD enables us to accurately obtain critical flow field parameters like pressure, velocity, temperature, and species concentration.
With the rapid advancement of computational technology, CFD allows us to solve increasingly complex fluid flow problems virtually and efficiently, providing quick insights and solutions in a wide range of industries and applications.
Here are some benefits and added values that our clients will receive from our CFD experts:
Rapid simulation of complex fluid flow cases without the need for numerous prototyping and testing, which is usually very expensive or impossible to complete.
Parametric studies of the process of interest, and iterating through various conditions more efficiently.
3D visualisation of the parameters of interest and in-depth insight on the flow patterns.
Assisting with planning for experimental tests via design of experiment (DOE) and reducing the number of tests, thus improving on time and cost in project life cycle.
Our CFD experts support our clients with a wide range of applications, including:
Process optimization (water, mine tailing, gas transport).
Equipment design and hydrodynamic optimization (pumps, compressors, fans, valves, mixers, separator, nozzles).
Ventilation and smoke studies (tunnels, residential).
External aerodynamic (transportation, sport, building).
Heat transfer and energy conversion (electronic cooling, HVAC, heat exchangers).
At Alphatecs, we use realistic simulation to provide technical solutions that bring value to our clients. For example, during the design of an embedded structure, our team used realistic simulation to develop a design that prevented failure under extreme soil liquefaction. In another example, we used realistic modeling to prevent the shutdown of the facility during the repair of the damaged structure by significantly reducing the extent, cost and duration of the repairs.
By accurately modeling the behavior of the structure under these conditions, we can identify critical areas that may require special design considerations. We utilize this approach to optimize critical design parameters in a wide range of industries including building, infrastructure, mining, marine and energy industries. Realistic simulation has allowed us to develop solutions that were previously not feasible due to high costs or technical limitations. This approach has helped us stay at the forefront of the industry and bring significant value to our clients.
