How Flow Simulation Can Help in Plant, Process, Construction & HVAC Project?

The growing global appetite for energy requires us to focus more on energy efficiency. Energy saving and climate control have become the hot topics now.

For Plant, Process and Construction Industry, their everyday challenges are chasing project deadlines while designing HVAC system such as ventilation, heat distribution, and airflow patterns that meet the project requirements.

So, how can Flow Simulation or what we technically call Computational Flow Dynamics (CFD) help? CFD allows you to model a wide range of physical phenomena to predict airflow and temperature distribution inside and around the building. In addition, it helps in simulating contaminant dispersion so that one can find ways to minimize the dispersion and improve human comfort level.

Design is an iterative process as engineers continuously modify the design until it meets acceptance criteria defined by safety, cost, performance, convenience, and shape. To optimize the process, CFD enables the automation of these iterations and helps engineers to find the best design earlier.

With the help of CFD, you will be able to vary a set of selected variable parameters, such as model dimensions, boundary condition parameters, and initial mesh settings, so as to analyze the flow parameters that you want to study.

The study will then compare the results of different scenarios in an intuitive format so you can find the best alternative.
