Manufacturing

 

When people think of CFD they typical associate it with the flow of air or water, however it can be used to analyse the behaviour of any fluid. Iron and plastics (as well as many other manufacturing materials) are also fluids before they solidify and using CFD to improve casting, mixing or extrusion processes can greatly improve existing techniques.

PHOENICS’s Lagrangian tracking module GENTRA is ideally suited to track fouling and deposition as well as mixing of particulates within a slug flow.
