Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software solves 3D Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer (Pressure, Temperature and Velocities). Historically CFD has been a field for specialists, and the perception is still that it is very expensive due to the cost of the software and the human resources to effectively use the software. However, there has been many advances in the usability and effectiveness of the software and more companies are using CFD in the design of their products.

We have our own CFD software licenses and provide this capability, together with our expertise, to solve real-world problems. CFD is typically used to:

  • Predict product performance, including off-design conditions
  • Investigate What-If scenarios
  • Investigate various concepts and identify why some concepts work better than others
  • Visualize the flow - identify inefficiencies
  • Demonstrate the use of technology to new and existing clients
