Recent Projects

Turbomachinery Sealing

Seals play a critical role in ensuring the efficient operation of turbomachinery. Consequently, designers and operators are keen to understand the extent to which seals impact the distribution of forces on the rotating and stationary parts over time. CFD simulation offers a highly accurate and cost-efficient method for predicting rotordynamic forces, surpassing the limitations of traditional physical testing approaches.

Turbo Air Classifiers

Classification devices are vital in various industries to isolate particles of specific sizes, including medicine, chemical production, metallurgy, and more. Turbo Air Classifiers are highly popular due to their excellent classification performance, adjustable cut size, and control over product granularity. Predicting the cut size is crucial for evaluating the classifier’s performance, and CFD is often used for accurate predictions due to limitations in theoretical/empirical methods.

High-Flux Heat Dissipation

Efficient extraction and dissipation of high heat fluxes are vital for driving technological advancements in many industries, including computer chips and hypersonic flight. Two-phase flow cooling systems provide an effective solution for heat dissipation, capitalizing on the unique thermal characteristics of phase-change heat transfer. By leveraging CFD, the evaporation rate can be accurately predicted, enabling optimization of the design for maximum thermal efficiency even before physical testing is initiated.

Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI)

By considering the mutual influence of fluid forces and structural responses, FSI analysis plays a crucial role in improving product design across various industries. Leveraging CFD combined with Finite Element Analysis, designers can gain insights into complex fluid-structure interactions, assess structural integrity, identify potential failure modes, and refine product designs to enhance efficiency and durability. Whether applied to aircraft wing, offshore structures, wind turbines, or control valves, FSI analysis serves as a valuable tool in shaping robust and innovative solutions for enhanced product performance and reliability.
