As part of our fluid mechanics consulting expertise we supplement our experimental capabilities with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), which uses numerical methods to solve the fundamental nonlinear differential equations that describe fluid flow. It is a powerful tool that can provide in-depth flow analysis for a wide range of applications.
Areas of CFD Consulting Expertise:
Conjugate Heat Transfer
In Depth Flow Analysis
Our CFD consultancy services can often be a cost effective option to provide answers to problems where experiments and physical prototyping are difficult or too expensive to carry out. CFD is invaluable in design or optimisation studies, where hundreds or even thousands of scenarios can be trialled before a particular flow device is manufactured. Subsequently reducing the time and cost to market.
A company’s exposure to technical risk when developing a new or novel flow related device can be significantly mitigated by utilising modern CFD methods, with their ever increasing accuracy and fidelity providing an even greater insight. SCITEK Consultants possess the skills and expertise to harness the power of CFD and apply it to deliver clients with high fidelity, pragmatic engineering solutions that are both cost effective and commercially viable.
SCITEK strictly adheres to industry best practise guidelines for all CFD analyses. We are fully conversant in OpenFOAM® and ANSYS® Fluent®, and have experience in using other commercially available packages.
SCITEK’s CFD consultancy has a vast range of experience in a variety of application areas, including Aerospace, Automotive, Marine and Oil & Gas.
Piping System Simulation
Simulation of flow in pipe systems is carried out using a one-dimensional (1D) analysis of flows, temperatures and pressures. Detailed simulation of test rigs or process equipment can be conducted with inclusion of pumps, compressors, heat exchangers, valves, etc.
