Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD for short)

Computational Fluid Dynamics, CFD for short, can be used to make precise calculations for the flow behaviour of your components without the need for time-consuming tests.


In addition to the calculation of a functional design, CFD offers other approaches for optimising your components or products. Increased efficiency, optimised thermal management or improved behaviour of the product in the wind tunnel can be achieved through CFD. 

Influences that cannot be seen by the naked eye can already be made visible during product development through flow simulations. For example, dissipated heat can be revealed by simulating thermal management and processes can be optimised as a result.

Relationships between pressure, temperature, losses and efficiencies can be better established through CFD calculations. The acoustic behaviour can also be depicted well.
Likewise, the behaviour of bulk materials, particles, snow, water, oil, etc. in multiphase flows can be mapped.

The behaviour of non-Newtonian fluids such as plastic melts, blood or jam can also be described.

CFD simulations are thus an effective way to optimise the planned or existing product already in the design phase. Thus, errors can be found and corrected quickly.
