Optimising plant components
using flow simulations

1 Introduction

CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) makes it possible to predict system behaviour in detail far exceeding traditional and costly test set-ups. Heat transfer, pressure loss behaviour, velocity profiles, particle tracking velocimetry, flow phenomena and vaporisation processes are analysed using CFD simulation. CFD simulation programs have therefore developed into important tools for the analysis and optimisation of industrial plant components. 


Today, development processes have to be effective and efficient. Effective computer simulations offer an alternative to costly,...
