Curtiss-Wright & FloTHERM™: From COTS to Custom Deployment

At Curtiss-Wright rely completely on engineering experience and thermal simulation to meet our requirements. FloTHERM® allows us to iterate multiple scenarios to optimize our systems for not only thermal performance, but also weight reduction, noise reduction, cost and schedule. More

Divide and Conquer

Fans, Computer Room Air Handlers (CRAH), and chillers, consume 35%-45% of the total power budget. A big concern for datacenter operators is reducing energy bills and one approach is to improve cooling efficiency. More

FloEFD for simulation of external aerodynamics

FloEFD™ has been successfully used to simulate external aerodynamics in various studies, ranging from aerofoils to whole aircraft modeling, for physically feasible range of Reynolds numbers including subsonic, transonic and supersonic cases. More

Geek Hub

Our team are passionate about all things CFD and love sharing their findings. In this issue, Product Marketing Manager and prolific blogger, Robin Bornoff describes how to bake a games console in an oven! More

Harnessing the Power of the Sun

A major new area for Eurotecnica is the storage of energy generated from solar power; an obvious characteristic of solar energy is that it is only available during daylight, which leads to a storage requirement more efficient than simply up-scaling standard battery technology. More
