CONTROLLED COOLING OF AUTOMOTIVE CASTINGS

Did you know that thermal management of a cylinder head had started way before it was bolted on your engine block? It first happened when the cylinder head casting emerged from the die freshly cast, still...

HUMAN BODY THERMAL MODEL FOR AUTOMOTIVE SIMULATIONS

Developers of SC/Tetra, one of the CFD codes we use to solve complex fluid flow and thermal management challenges have gone quite far in terms of accurately simulating thermal behaviour of the human body. This modeling...

CELL DEVELOPMENT FOR A CENTRIFUGAL PARTITION CHROMATOGRAPHY MACHINE

I surely said this before but if you are so fortunate to do fluid dynamics simulations as your profession you can always learn something new. Controlled cooling of cylinder head castings after solidification? Sounds cool! Simulation...

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF CYLINDER HEAD CLEANING BY CFD, PART 2.

In the previous part I wrote about how effective and flexible meshing had been with SC/Tetra when simulating many extraction head versions for the cylinder head vacuum-cleaner. When I wanted to analyse a new extraction head...

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF CYLINDER HEAD CLEANING BY CFD, Part 1.

The simulation of aluminium particle removal by compressed air carried out successfully in 2013 continued in 2014 with new challenges. The results of simulations made in 2013 have been producing profit for the engine manufacturer in...

RIDING WAVES: FREE SURFACE AND MOTION SIMULATION

Ships are somehow special, they have an aura only a large vehicle has. It’s not like a car you jump in and the interior can be assessed in a twinkling of an eye. A ship is...
