What is the Flow Simulation?
Flow simulation, also known as CFD simulation, is used for the design and optimization of fluid dynamics for components and assemblies. The method is based on numerical models that simulate and visualize flows and flow patterns.
As a development service provider, Lightbau Engineering calculates the flow behavior of your products, provides important insights into process dynamics and derives measures to increase performance.
Advantages and benefits of CFD simulation
Insights into the process dynamics
Flow simulations make the pressures, flow forces, temperatures, heat and particle flows that occur depending on the application visible at an early stage and help to optimize your products.
Increase cost efficiency
CFD simulations can be performed directly on the virtual prototype. The digital approach allows simultaneous investigation of multiple designs and is usually more cost-efficient than manufacturing multiple functional prototypes.
Shorter development times
CFD simulations allow optimization potential to be identified at an early stage of product development and targeted measures to be initiated. The digital approach results in a shorter time-to-market.
The flow simulation shows flow and pressure losses transparently. Based on this, Lightbau Engineering develops flow-optimized concepts to increase the efficiency of your products.
Application areas of flow simulations
The consideration of different flow types enables the use of CFD simulations in different industries. Depending on the application, a distinction is made between:
- incompressible and compressible flow
- laminar and turbulent flows
- fluid – solid body interaction
- multiphase flow
- heat simulation / convection, heat transfer
