Heat Exchanger

Heat Exchanger

1D System Simulation

Modeling and system integration at different levels of detail. Based on heat exchanger performance maps, geometry-based, regression tools.

3D FEA

Stress caused by fluid pressure and temperature differences, strength evaluation.

3D CFD

Detailed flow optimization, CHT (conjugate heat transfer), pressure and temperature for FEA.

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC)

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC)

Calculations for thermodynamic cycles (air conditioning systems, heat pumps) and boilers.

1D System Simulation

System simulation at different levels of detail:

  1. Detailed components: heat exchanger, pump, valves incl. geometry, moving masses, etc..
  2. Complete HVAC system: integration of components in the form of submodels into a complete HVAC system.
  3. Integration of HVAC system into a building, vehicle, etc.. Calculation of energy consumption.

3D MBD/ FEA

Dynamics of moving parts like in pumps and fast switching valves, stress calculation. Stress caused by fluid pressure and temperature differences, strength evaluation.

3D CFD

Detailed flow optimization of operating fluid incl. pumps, valves, throttle, etc.. Optimization of fan and flow onto the heat exchanger. Simulaton of ducts and room airflow.

Continuous Strip Processes

Continuous Strip Processes

Continuous production processes for strip material such as paper, metal and foils are generally difficult or even impossible to be simulated with MBD, FEA and CFD due to the sheer size of the systems. Therefore these tools are mostly used to optimize details of smaller subsystems. System simulation can provide high value by modeling large parts of the plant in order to design control algorithms.

1D System Simulation

Simplified modeling of the physics of the plant, virtual commissioning.

3D MBD/ FEA

Operation and dynamics of mechanical subsystems, vibrations, strength evaluation.

3D CFD

Detailed flow optimization.
