CONTROLLED COOLING OF AUTOMOTIVE CASTINGS

Did you know that thermal management of a cylinder head had started way before it was bolted on your engine block? It first happened when the cylinder head casting emerged from the die freshly cast, still...

CELL DEVELOPMENT FOR A CENTRIFUGAL PARTITION CHROMATOGRAPHY MACHINE

I surely said this before but if you are so fortunate to do fluid dynamics simulations as your profession you can always learn something new. Controlled cooling of cylinder head castings after solidification? Sounds cool! Simulation...

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF CYLINDER HEAD CLEANING BY CFD, PART 2.

In the previous part I wrote about how effective and flexible meshing had been with SC/Tetra when simulating many extraction head versions for the cylinder head vacuum-cleaner. When I wanted to analyse a new extraction head...

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF CYLINDER HEAD CLEANING BY CFD, Part 1.

The simulation of aluminium particle removal by compressed air carried out successfully in 2013 continued in 2014 with new challenges. The results of simulations made in 2013 have been producing profit for the engine manufacturer in...

RIDING THE WAVES: FREE SURFACE AND MOTION SIMULATION

Ships are somehow special, they have an aura only a large vehicle has. It’s not like a car you jump in and the interior can be assessed in a twinkling of an eye. A ship is...

SLIVERS GONE IN HIGH PRESSURE WIND

I am definite that the project this application example is made of is the greatest challenge I have faced so far in my professional life as a CFD guy. It was about the CFD simulation of...

SWEEPING CARBON-DIOXIDE FROM A NITROGEN FACTORY

More than 80 years ago, in 1931 Nitrogen Works Ltd. (Nitrogenmuvek Zrt.) started production of inorganic chemicals and fertilizers. In 2012 in this flagship of Hungarian chemical industry CFD Engineering got an interesting fluid flow and...

WORKBOOK FOR VENTILATOR CFD SIMULATIONS

During the last couple of months I spent many time with ventilator CFD simulations, I had the chance to discuss it and exchange experience with CFD specialists of ventilator companies from Germany. Based on these simulations and...

FREE WATER SURFACE IN A TURBO MIXER

I had the chance some weeks ago to spend a day at one of our SC/Tetra users, where the main subject was a small mixer in their lab. On that day we created a simulation to model...

PAZFLOR PROJECT: URGENT + TOP SECRET

Mid July 2008. The sun sends 1 kilowatt energy to every square meter of the land. The heat is horrible. Computers blow heat into the office too, the air conditioner can hardly cope with the load. The...

FLUE GAS COOLER SIMULATION PART 2.

I finally finished the application example of the flue gas cooler tower. Here is the second part of the story with a video summary.

Previously I talked about the cooling tower of a waste...

FLUE GAS COOLING WITH WATER SPRAY

This application example is interesting in terms of environmental protection although it was really exciting to simulate with a CFD simulation. There is a waste burner works in Hungary where water vapor is used to cool the...

WATER HAMMER: PRESSURE WAVES IN PIPES

This information video shows the CFD simulation of an interesting physical phenomenon: the pressure wave propagation in pipes or with other words the water hammer effect. There are two examples showed in the video. The first is...
