Computational Fluid Dynamics
Popularly abbreviated as CFD, the method has become vital for industries and is growing more and more popular in academia and research institutions. With the growing advent of computer technologies and faster and more powerful computers, the use of numerical tools to solve flow problems have become more attractive.
CFD uses the power of computations resources to solve Navier Stokes equation; popularly abbreviated as N-S equations to solve real world flow and thermal problems. It finds applications in automobiles for reduction of drag, in aviation for understanding lift, in turbomachines for better utilization of energy, in process and metallurgy, in ballistics to understand sound (acoustics), in engines for combustion and so on.
Cold flow simulations
CFD has the power to envisage the most simple problems to the most complex problems. Cold flow simulations are some of the most common and simplest of all engineering flow problems which is observed in our day to day professional life.
Battery and Thermal Management
With the growing stress on air pollution, governments around the world are taking stringent action by incorporating penalties for dirty production techniques in industry. These includes green tax, strict guidelines and penalties including cancellation and blacklisting of companies. Growing corporate policies is converging onto use of battery as substitute for gasoline and other petroleum products for energy, especially in automobiles.
Technology has been fast developing for the past few decades. The sizes of products have been continually reducing, but the amount of functions it houses has been increasing at par with the customer demand.
Combustion and Species Transport
decades, species transport and combustion analysis has been a nightmare for
engineer and researchers since it is difficult and close to impossible as to
understand what is really going on in the back side of the process. It has
always been challenging for researchers and engineers to find the perfect
combination of conditions to achieve the desired reaction whether it is
volumetric or surface.
The application of multi-phase problems are
generally in hydrology and water management, though nowadays it has been used
in many other industries including health care and transportation industry.
Discrete Phase Models (DPM)
Discrete Phase Models popularly abbreviated as DPM, is a lagrangian model of simulation and is mainly used in much more complex systems where particles are important, such as in nano fluids. In most situations, it will be necessary to observe the movement or behavior of one or a group of particle in the system of importance. DPM helps us to track the particle and understand its behavior with the system.
Chemical Reaction and After Treatment Analysis
Chemical Reaction and After treatment analysis has become more popular among CFD engineers especially in the automobile industry. With Indian government announcing BS 6 and European pollution norms passing over to Euro 6 as well, car manufacturers around the world are working hard to find ways to reduce the pollution and meet up to the standards.
Non-Conventional Energy Sources
Recent decades witnessed more researches into the usage of non –conventional resources and alternate energy sources. The world started realizing that gasoline or petroleum derived products cannot be used for long as it gets deprived. The newly educated generation are also aware of the harmful effects of the gasoline products as it emits harmful products into the environment adversely affecting the life on earth.
