CFDApps provide bespoke engineering simulations of fluid flows using a computer simulation method known as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). This method produces detailed knowledge of fluid flow through or around an object or groups of objects and predicts important performance characteristics such as velocity, pressures, concentrations and fluid-dynamic forces. This knowledge is then used to optimise the geometry of fluid-related products by making them more aerodynamic and hydrodynamic, leading to reduced energy loss and increased performance.
For example, the design of an aeroplane relies heavily on these simulation techniques to reduce fuel costs through reducing drag. Energy producing devices such as hydro-turbines and wind turbines may be made more efficient through shape optimisation, thereby extracting more energy from a given flow. Pipework components such as valves, heat exchanges and mixers used in process industries may be designed to reduce pressure losses, thereby reducing the costs related to transporting fluid when processing.
