Simulating for understanding, efficiency and safety

Designing safe and efficient plant hinges on access to accurate performance data: something fluid simulation can provide from the earliest phases of concept design. Mentor Graphics Mechanical Analysis offers a range of fluid simulation packages that can provide fluid and thermodynamic information for individual components or entire systems, in steady state or transient.

“Physical measurements were essential to the project’s success, but couldn’t produce the needed data in every case. With simulation we were able to look at static pressure distributions through a flow field and get information on the total pressure, which is a direct measure of the entropy in the system. A loss in total pressure is energy loss, and CFD delivers a color picture of where the losses are. We could never have hoped to measure that with physical measurements alone.”
