ANSYS CFD Professional quickly delivers key insights into your design's performance. It is ideal for designing valves, piping connections and junctions, and ventilation systems that call for:

  • Steady state CFD simulations
  • Reducing pressure drop
  • Incompressible flows
  • Single-phase flows
  • Improving flow split
  • Convective heat transfer
  • Conjugate heat transfer
  • Optimising ventilation system installation
  • Predicting flow and thermal behavior

Product Features Include:

Designing Air Intake System with Uniform Flow Split

Air intake system

Application
Air intake system

Goal
Maximise flow split uniformity

How Simulation Helps
In the original air box, the flow did not reach all cylinders uniformly. The addition of guide vanes provided better intake and more-uniform air flow distribution. Location, size and number of vanes are optimised using simulation.

Predicting Maximum Temperature of Exhaust Manifold

Application
Exhaust manifold

Goal
Ensure that the maximum temperature of the body of an exhaust manifold is below a critical value

How Simulation Helps
The hot gas flow as well as heat conduction in the manifold material are simulated. Results show the complete map of the manifold temperature. Engineers can determine if the design is acceptable by assessing whether the maximum temperature is below a pre-determined threshold.

Predicting Flow Temperature and Stratification

Application
Test rig used to analyze thermal stratification effects in nuclear power plant pipes

Goal
Optimise thermal stratification test rig

How Simulation Helps
CFD helped AREVA to complete simulations as a preliminary study to optimise a test rig. CFD enabled improving inlet and outlet geometry without further costs for testing, fulfilling test specifications

Maximising Efficiency of Heat Exchanger

Application
Heat exchanger

Goal
Define the design that ensures maximum heat exchange efficiency

How Simulation Helps
Simulation showed that the shell casing was oversized, allowing heated water to bypass the heat exchange area. Minor modifications to the geometry resulted in higher efficiency, smaller shell size/weight and less material/lower product cost, resulting in a competitive advantage.

Maximising Mixing Performance of Valve

Application
Valve - cold/hot water mixing

Goal
Define the design that ensures maximum mixing

How Simulation Helps
Simulation allowed engineers to design a valve that ensures complete mixing of hot and cold streams of water. This ensures a uniform temperature of the water coming out of the valve.

Ensuring Maximum Safety of Offshore Helideck

Application
Helideck design

Goal
Ensure that the design of the helideck is not potentially dangerous for helicopter operations

How Simulation Helps
The fluid dynamics tool simulated the flow surrounding offshore helidecks and identified potential recirculation zones, which can be dangerous for helicopters during take-off/landing.

Minimising Pressure Drop

Check valve

Application
Check valve

Goal
Define the best check valve system that minimizes pressure drop

How Simulation Helps
The fluid dynamics results showed turbulence inside the valve body, indicating areas that could be modified to reduce pressure losses.

Defining Optimum Location of Exhaust System

Clean room ventilation/exhaust hood

Clean room.

 

Application
Clean room ventilation/exhaust hood

Goal
Define optimum configuration/installation and minimize operation costs

How Simulation Helps
The different configurations are tested virtually and the performance (how fast pollutants and toxic gas are removed) is evaluated for each design. Once all possible designs are evaluated, the best design is selected.
