Fluids Dynamics Analysis

The study of fluids is complex but possible to whom has access to a CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software. With this computational tool, flow data such as velocity, direction, temperature, density, pressure, among others, can be calculated and analysed.

Serious CFD

ANSYS offers a serious CFD software to the most demanding users. This is the kind of CFD that is able to simulate the most complex problems, it is able to deliver accurate quantitative predictions and it allows the users to confidently and quickly optimize and study its products.

Incompressible flows

Problems encompassing incompressible flows can be found almost in every kind of industry, and in a wide range of applications like external aerodynamics, internal flows and aeroacoustics. These flows can be turbulent or laminar, and can be analysed in a steady or unsteady manner.

Reacting flows and combustion

Predicting and understanding the underlying chemistry and physics’ processes in reacting flows is critical to increase energy efficiency, fuel flexibility and reduce emissions of products such as gas turbines, boilers, IC engines and others.
Similarly, this understanding will also enable high-throughput materials and chemical processes which need high yields and quality to reduce byproducts and waste.
A thorough grasp of the reacting flows is also critical when making improvements in lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells and many other products.

Thermal management

Products which deal with temperature problems need to optimize the heat transfer between fluids and solids in order to maintain a constant temperature, maximize performance, reduce maintenance costs or extend the life time.
Fluids can cool down or heat up machine parts, process equipment, engine components and other solids. These thermal effects can in turn deform the walls or parts that are being cooled or heated. ANSYS delivers fast and accurate solutions to predict the performance of the widest range of fluid-solid heat transfer issues, including conjugate heat transfer (CHT) and thermal fluid–structure interaction (FSI).

High Rheology materials

Engineers who need to optimize processes such as extrusion, thermoforming, blow moulding, glass production, fibre drawing and concrete shaping can fully trust in ANSYS. ANSYS shortens the design cycle time while, at the same time, reduces energy and raw material consumption. This makes the manufacturing processes more cost-effective and environmentally more sustainable.

Rotating Machinery and Turbomachinery

Turbomachinery is one of the most rewarding and challenging of the simulation types. ANSYS delivers innovations at every stage of the simulation process, from modeling and meshing to solving and post-processing. Whether designing a jet engine, a wind turbine or a turbocharger, ANSYS helps you to extend the limits of what is possible so you can maximize your product’s performance and efficiency.

Multiphase flows

There are several problems that involve multiphase flows like boiling, cavitation, immiscible flows, or flows with particles. ANSYS provides the widest range of sophisticated turbulence and physical models so one can accurately simulate the toughest challenges and confidently predict the product performance.
