Flow distribution inside tank
Tanks, hollow housings for the storage of fluids (whether gas or liquid), are used across a wide range of industries.
In process industries they are used to store chemicals, pharmaceuticals and even petroleum. In this case the engineer needed to optimize the internal plate to minimize pressure loss. FloEFD was used to calculate the flow distribution and pressure loss inside the chamber.
To find the best design option for the tank, the engineer conducted “what-if” analysis with FloEFD. FloEFD makes it easy to modify solid models and analyze them. The process is simple: by using the cloning feature, users can create multiple variations of their designs and without having to reapply loads, boundary conditions, material properties etc the model can be analyzed again. Then the user can choose the best possible design among the various options. With FloEFD, improving and optimizing designs is easy.

“With FloEFD software we were able to evaluate 15 different alternatives very quickly and without cutting any metal. One of them provides the same performance as the previous design even though it is much less expensive to make because it does not require hydroforming.”
