CFD and FEM
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
The computational fluid dynamics simulation (CFD) makes it possible to virtually ‚dive‘ into the stirred tank and to observe the digitally simulated flow behavior in detail. By doing so, the knowledge gained in practical experiments can be supplemented, if necessary, with further data, which is important for the design of the agitator.
Finite element method (FEM)
With the finite element method (FEM) we have another simulation process, that is focused on the accurate dimensioning and mechanical construction of the components of your agitator. With this method, all process-relevant parameters can precisely be determined – from the selection and construction of the agitating element to the hydraulic loading of the used components.
