At HIGTEC you can test, validate and optimize your designs through our CFD analysis services.
Computational Fluid Dynamics, CFD analysis can be applied to simulate fluid movement and heat transfer. At HIGTEC we can analyze a range of problems related to laminar and turbulent flows, incompressible and compressible fluids, multiphase flow and many more CFD analyses. Our services eliminate the barriers of limited computing power, accessibility and high costs.
Under certain circumstances, compressibility can become an important consideration. Accurately modeling compressibility is important for better and safer product development and design.
HIGTEC can enable CFD analysis of both incompressible and compressible flows in a robust and accurate manner. Applications include aircraft, car spoilers, exhaust, airfoils, injectors, valves, pipelines and much more.
HIGTEC supports the modeling of both laminar and turbulent flow regimes. CFD analyzes are used to solve complex flow equations with precise numerical methods. We use several turbulence models, including k-omega SST and k-epsilon. Applications of our CFD analyzes include pipelines, cyclone separators, separators, heat exchangers, smoke diffusion or clean room facilities.
CFD analyzes can be performed for multiphase flow using the volume of fluid (VoF) method. We can perform CFD analyzes for two non-mixing liquids, such as oil, water or air. This approach allows the modeling of laminar or turbulent free surface flows, commonly found in marine or process engineering applications.
Wind technology is the science that combines fluid mechanics with wind and thermal comfort to guarantee safe and qualitative living conditions for humans. Due to the complexity of urban areas and modern architectural designs, a CFD analysis to evaluate them is very important. HIGTEC can evaluate your design in an easy and efficient way using a CFD, FEM and thermal analysis. With a wind simulation we can predict reality without performing physical tests, for different scenarios and applications. Think of wind comfort for pedestrians, wind load on buildings and thermal comfort.
Optimize your ventilation strategies for an optimal environment. A well-ventilated building is essential to prevent contamination or an optimal indoor climate. HIGTEC can set up and perform an airflow simulation for indoor environments using a CFD analysis (computational fluid dynamics).
In addition, learn how to test different ventilation strategies and evaluate design options to combat a simulated pollutant or virus.
HIGTEC has up to 96 cores and the possibility to run multiple CFD simulations in parallel. This reduces CFD analyzes from weeks and days to hours and minutes. You will receive your results faster than ever before because our simulations are 15-25 times shorter than standard CFD analysis companies.
We work with your standard CAD tool and support all 3D files for a CFD analysis. Easily test performance, optimize durability and improve the efficiency of your 3D design.
Investing in expensive, powerful computers and worrying about installing and maintaining simulation software are now a thing of the past. You do not need to make large investments in hardware and maintenance to perform a CFD analysis. By using our CFD analysis services, HIGTEC helps you to save on average €40,000 by reducing the cost of expensive hardware and software maintenance costs.
“To get the same results with a physical test, it would take months and cost between €8,000 and €16,000, even for this project, which is very small. HIGTEC could just do a CFD analysis for us that only took a few days”
“Applying CFD analysis saved approximately €15,000 for each of the 4 design iterations, in addition to savings in re-manufacturing costs”
” Thanks to the professional support of HIGTEC engineers and the perfect communication with them, we were able to perform efficient simulations and solve our design problems. It is hard to imagine how much physical prototyping time and measures we have saved thanks to the CFD analyzes from HIGTEC “
