CFD-Driven Shape Optimization of a Globe Valve: An Industrial Case
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in combination with shape optimization is a powerful tool for engineers and designers who want to optimize their product designs. In this webinar, our experts show you how FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS and GEMÜ, leading companies in the fields of CFD-driven shape optimization and valves, respectively, leveraged the power of the cloud using SimScale to automate the design of a globe valve. The webinar shows:
Head of Sales
Mattia is the Head of Sales at Friendship Systems and previously worked in the pre-sales and engineering teams. He has over 13 years of experience at Friendship Systems with a background in naval architecture.
Marco Wissinger has worked as a development engineer at GEMÜ since 2019, focusing on CFD, the development of parametric CAD-models with CAESES, and the development and validation of simulations-based digital twins. He holds a Master in Mechanical Engineering with specialization in thermodynamics and fluid dynamics from Technical University Ilmenau, Germany.
“The SimScale platform has allowed us to develop and test scenarios including ventilation flow paths and understanding the dynamics between building fabric, airtightness, window natural ventilation design, and CO2 concentrations in various utilisation scenarios. The platform has given us quality, visually digestible output to inform decision-making and to compare results against our monitored data from our extensive post-occupancy studies. Working with SimScale has allowed us to study our learning spaces in a way we never have before. It has helped inform us on which design strategies may provide the biggest impact on performance. The visual outputs have real value, not just in terms of informing our decision-making, but potentially in communicating how classrooms can work and feel to clients and stakeholders.”
“When I started with SimScale, I knew from my previous experience how simulations are structured and work, but I had forgotten some details over the years. The great tutorials, documentation, and personal conversations with support have brought me up to date within 2 months of using SimScale. I am now well versed and use SimScale even with smaller problems to confirm my pre-calculations and to quickly compare design studies.”
SimScale is the world’s first production-ready SaaS application for simulation. By providing instant access to (CFD) and (FEA) to over 200,000 users, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application to a user-friendly cloud application accessible via a subscription-based pricing model.
