CFD modeling

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is the use of applied mathematics, physics and computational software to visualize how a gas or liquid flows and evaluate the related heat transfer
  • CFD is a key tool:
    • for checking & improving performance and reliability of heat transfer equipment
    • for troubleshooting
  •  

    THE TARGETS

    • Energy balance in equipment:
      • boilers / dryers / heat exchangers / furnaces
    • Vibration analysis
    • Stress & lifecycle analysis
    • Providing clear&strong conclusions

    HOW WE WORK

    • Visit to site for field measurements: temperature, flows, emissions, pressures
    • Detailed modeling of the equipment
    • Computational calculations
    • Report with conclusions and next steps

    TYPICAL CASES

    • Some examples of successful CFD analysis:
      • Checking steam production of boilers in design stage, before commissioning
      • Combustion analysis in biomass boiler in order to abate CO / NOx emissions
      • Vibration analysis in a heat recovery boiler associated to gas turbine
      • Estimation of dP in a HRSG and evaluation of impact in gas turbine performance
      • Structural safety and stress analysis in equipment with cyclical start/stop schedule
