An open system providing users the freedom to customize and extend simulation ability
Aerospace applications are quite often very complex. For example, fuel systems involve interaction between the fluid as well as the mechanical and electrical systems onboard the aircraft. Flowmaster features dedicated aircraft system modeling functionality and industry tailored component libraries, streamlined to optimize workflow and facilitate the development and simulation of highly complex systems that meet regulations. Therefore, users can build system models and run steady state and transient simulations quicker and easier than ever before. Possible applications can be for fuel systems, environmental control, hydraulic systems, vapor cycle systems as well as UAV systems.
Today’s cars consist of complex interdependent systems – often designed by separate groups and even by different vendors. Designed specifically for automotive engineers and analysts, Flowmaster provides a dynamic thermo-fluid system simulation software solution for the automotive industry. The systems modeling packages include a wide range of standard and system specific components enabling users to build networks and run simulations quicker and easier than ever before. Flowmaster applications can be found in airside, air conditioning, cooling, exhaust, fuel and lubrication.
Flowmaster is a thermo-fluid system simulation software tool that allows engineers to simulate systems performance of both new and existing power plants when the need to design safe, reliable and efficient systems across a range of applications is of paramount importance. Flowmaster also provides specific functionality such as swirl and heat transfer solver capability of secondary system modeling in support of gas turbine simulation. Some typical applications for power generation applications are for heavy duty diesel engines, fossil fuels as well as green or renewable energy systems.
Process and Chemical
Flowmaster is a thermo-fluid system simulation software tool that allows process system engineers to investigate pressure surge, pressure drop, flow rate, temperature and system response times – removing the uncertainty from fluid flow systems. Model and simulate critical systems in order to; validate new systems designs, design retrofits to an existing system, troubleshoot potential problems and monitor process plant systems during the maintenance cycle. Applications such as cooling, safety and distribution systems can greatly benefit from 1D systems analysis with Flowmaster.
Oil and Gas
Flowmaster is a thermo-fluid system simulation software tool that allows oil and gas system engineers to investigate pressure surge, pressure drop, flow rate, temperature and system response times – removing the uncertainty from fluid flow systems. The astronomical cost of downtime combined with the high safety requirements has meant that organisations are using Flowmaster to reduce uncertainty through the use of system simulation. Onshore, subsea, topsides, pipeline and compressor stations are typical applications that can benefit from 1D analysis with Flowmaster.
