Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Consulting

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a type of FEA, but is used exclusively to determine responses of fluids and gases. Fluid/gas temperature and pressure can produce stresses on the container and associated structures; Eclipse can incorporate all the relevent factors, providing analysis and design for the complete system, including fluid/gas, container, and internal/support structures. Generally, we can perform the following:

  • Determine temperature distribution in fluids/gases or equipment
  • Determine temperature and velocity profiles for different conditions
  • Provide a favorable flow distribution
  • Determine scale-up anomalies
  • Avoid equipment fatigue failures due to repeated exposure to temperature gradients

CFD for Coal-Fired Power Generation

Eclipse uses CFD software to optimize the flow characteristics of large ducts and associated equipment for its customers in the coal-fired power generation business. A well designed system will require less boost from fans and reduce particulate fallout. Eclipse is also adept at optimizing vane arrangement and location.

CFD for Chemical Processing Equipment

Our CFD analysis can:

  • Maximize heat transfer
  • Determine temperature distribution of the gas, fluid, or equipment, which can be used for a subsequent stress analysis
  • Optimize heat exchanger baffling arrangement
  • Analyse mixing due to stirring or injection
