The possibilities for optimizing the performance of some thermal-fluid components are difficult to grasp, and the impact of proposed changes can be substantial.
In many such cases, the solution is to develop a numerical model of the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) type. CFD solvers solve time-dependent two- or three-dimensional equations of mass and energy transport, allowing for a detailed description of the process. Advanced simulations allow for process optimization and quantitative determination of optimization effects.
At Euros Energy, we develop CFD modeling based on the mature, versatile computational code OpenFOAM, which is an alternative to the ANSYS Fluent program.
