CFD, FEA and Thermal Analysis Software for Plant Engineering
Enabling plant engineers and mechanical designers to virtually test and optimize their designs, SimScale is contributing to the development of a more efficient production. When designing industrial plants, a process engineer has to deal with numerous challenges regarding different physical effects which need to be tackled in the development-phase. In most cases, plants need to work reliably over extremely long periods of time, in different operation modes. In addition, the resource-intensive processes often have enormous potential for optimization which can be increased by improving product or process performance. The need for better industrial machinery and components, larger units, complex installations or industrial equipment is pushing for innovations that can speed up the engineering design process.
Here are some of the Plant Engineering categories that engineers are simulating with SimScale:
Heat generation and heat transfer (fluid flow, temperature fields, natural or forced convection)
Fluid flow simulation can help to design better ducts in apparatus engineering in order to increase the performance of the overall system. Showing how creating a homogeneous flow field in front of the apparatus can enhance its efficiency, this project includes the parallel simulations of two inlet duct designs, providing a good example for the practical usage of CFD in plant engineering applications.
