Who Uses PHOENICS
Architects & Builders
A wide range of environmental conditions can
be assessed in a fraction of the time, and at a fraction of the
cost, taken to carry out field experiments or wind-tunnel tests.
PHOENICS helps architects and builders to determine, among other
- If structures create unwanted wind tunnels
- Where to site fire exits to maximise safety
- Where heating and ventilation outlets should be sited to maximise impact
Full three-dimensional steady or transient models can be set up
to take account of the effects of conduction, convection, radiation,
buoyancy forces, turbulence and fire and smoke spread.
PHOENICS (through its special purpose-code
FLAIR) helps architects, design engineers and safety officers concerned
with the performance of air-flow systems for the built environment.
FLAIR enables users to visualise, understand, evaluate and refine
air flow patterns. It can be used to model clean rooms, operating
theatres, sports arenas, car parks, road and rail tunnels, industrial
environments and residential developments.
PHOENICS Virtual Wind Tunnel allows designers to evaluate the aerodynamics
of a car, van, train or truck. Calculations for forces and coefficients
of drag and lift are included.
PHOENICS can analyse the spread of pollution and therefore ensure
intelligent design to reduce emissions at the point of generation.
It can also help evaluate discharge into the atmosphere, seas, lakes
PHOENICS HOTBOX provides electronics engineers with an integrated
Virtual Reality environment for modelling the cooling requirements
of critical electronic components and assemblies.
A wide range of combustion models are included covering coal, gas,
wood and oil together with CHEMKIN, (chemical, kinetic database).
PHOENICS CVD is designed to simulate the behaviour of a wide range
of CVD reactors to by modelling the fluid flow and heat transfer
in multi-component gasses.
PHOENICS: CAD to CFD
PHOENICS has new features re DatMaker and other CAD to CFD facilities including utilisation of SimLab Composer, Inivis AC3D and Okino Nugraf. For full information regarding formats etc please go to PHOENICS CAD to CFD.
