Multiphase Flow Simulation

SimScale offers robust Multiphase simulation capabilities that leverage our cloud-native platform to simplify the simulation workflow and reduce simulation turnaround time.

Multiphase flow is common in many industrial applications like process engineering, oil & gas equipment, turbomachinery & industrial equipment, marine, and hydraulic engineering. Multiphase flow simulations are inherently complex and time-consuming. Accuracy and fast turnaround time are crucial for evaluating design performance. 

Predict performance curves for two-phase flows

Predicting performance curves for two-phase flows requires transient simulations and a cloud-native multiphase solver allows fast parameterization of operation conditions to obtain performance curves in minutes. This is relevant for pumps, valves, piping systems, industrial equipment, etc.

Cavitation effects in pumps and hydro turbines

SimScale’s cavitation model can robustly model the effect of vapor bubbles in incompressible liquid flow (e.g., pumps, hydro turbines, marine propellers, etc.)

Flow analysis and hydraulic efficiency computations

Quickly and accurately compute flow analysis and hydraulic efficiency for different types of industrial equipment, hydrofoils, etc.

multiphase flow simulation

Free surface flow simulations to predict exact flow patterns, volumetric flow rates & exit velocities, and structural loading due to fluid flow

Fully understanding the free surface behavior of flow and consequent structural loading and discharge characteristics is cruicial to developing better designs that can withstand a range of operating conditions.

Static ship/boat hull resistance studies to evaluate the hydrodynamic performance of the ship

Carry out resistance studies to evaluate hydrodynamic performance experienced by the structure.
