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 things:
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.
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 or rivers.
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.
