CFD - a tool for product development

Virtual product development - streamline your testing using our CFD resources!

Practical tests can often be far more cost and time efficient, if the application is first analyzed using numerical simulations. It gives a complete visualization of the expected flow. SP offers a broad and deep expertise, and can offer customized simulation tools.

Let's get started -

The first step is to establish the heart of the issue and to suggest a practical plan. Our experienced researchers do this efficiently and act as constructive partners.

The methods -

You will be supported by very experienced and competent people and, with suitable simulation tools. We use software like FLUENT, CFX, but have experience from several others. We have experience with many physical models.

The result -

Depending on your needs, the result is presented in a report, statement or any other way that suits you.

Examples for use of our services:

• CFD calculations to complement the measurements, where the analysis results can replace several prototypes at the conceptual stage, so-called virtual product development.
• Calculations to identify locations where physical measurements are best suited.
• Optimization of geometry through statistical Design of Experiments.
• Problem identification in a design.
• Calculations where flow is combined with temperature, i.e.  heat transfer.
• Calculations with CFD is combined with structural analysis, Fluid Structure Interaction.
• CFD in combination with chemistry, for example combustion, and mass transfer.
• CFD in combination with electromagnetic fields, known as Magneto Hydro Dynamics.
• Development of a qualitative and quantitative picture of the flow as a base for discussions.

Facts:
The development of CFD - Computational Fluid Dynamics, was originally motivated by the need to analyze flows where measurements were difficult to perform. Examples of such areas are liquid metals at high temperatures, objects where it is not possible to do full-scale measurements like nuclear reactors, flows in rivers, atmospheric flow, etc.
CFD has been used since the 1970s, and is continuously evolving by managing larger and more
complex geometries with higher resolution, but
also by development of new and improved physical models,
in addition to more efficient numerical methods.
