Computational Fluid Dynamics

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are an effective way to assess the viability of a fan installation.

A form of computer simulation, CFD is much less expensive than scale model testing and provides an opportunity to test design variations iteratively in a virtual environment so that one can arrive at a fully optimized design.

This case study shows how CFD proved invaluable for evaluating an excessive buildup problem in a cement plant air handling system and creating a fan design that resolved the issue and increased the overall efficiency of the impeller.
