Computational Fluid Dynamics - CFD

SP uses both commercial packages and in-house software developed for specific application such as fire. The CFD software can handle the following, both under steady state and transient conditions:

  • Combustion applications
  • Flame and smoke spread during fires
  • Two phase flows
  • Production of chemical compounds
  • Ventilation and natural convection

We have the capability to model a wide range of products from wires, cables, dielectric materials to complex structures using CAD data. For solving a large variety of problems in the time and frequency domain simulation packages based on Finite Difference Methods (FDM), Method of Moments (MoM) and Circuit methods are used. Some of the regularly areas we study include:

  • EMC
  • Antennas
  • Crosstalk
  • Specific Absorption Rate (SAR
Finite Element Method - FEM

FE-calculations are offered as an alternative or com-plement to our experimental testing. We work with advanced commercial software and have solvers for both implicit and explicit solutions. We handle most FE-applications in both the time and frequency domain, where solutions can include severe non-linearities in both material proporties and geometries. Some of the areas we regulary study include:

  • Structural analysis
  • Fracture mechanics
  • Materials modelling
  • Buckling
  • Dynamic and transient analysis
  • Heat and mass transfer
  • Sound propagation in ducts
  • Building acoustics
Other Applications
  • Advanced mathematical tools for zone modelling
  • Thermal calculation
  • Statistical analysis
  • Transport of acid gases in concrete
  • Sound reduction index of constructions
  • Sound propagation outdoors
  • Screening by sound barriers with different shapes
