Our experience covers the following research and development areas:
- Modeling of electric arcs
- Coupling of fluid mechanics
- Radiative transfer
- Describing reactions
As a team for applied "Scientific Computing & Engineering" we offer many different services. We are happy to support you in analyzing and optimizing your products with respect to acoustic properties by means of numerical simulations. Depending on the problem, we also work closely with other teams from the institute.
Fluid dynamics simulations
Flow simulations (CFD) can be used to analyze, understand and visualize complex processes and procedures in thermodynamics and fluid dynamics. Through flow simulations, individual components, entire products or plants can be optimized on the computer, which drastically reduces the number of time-consuming and costly tests. The IET has extensive knowledge and practical experience in the field of CFD in an industrial environment. We can competently advise and support you in your simulation projects. The following CFD tools are mainly used for this purpose: ANSYS (CFX and Fluent), COMSOL, STAR-CCM+ and OpenFOAM.
When designing new products, the design with regard to noise emissions also plays an important role. Be it a wind turbine, household appliances, air conditioners or larger components such as axial compressors for power generation (see film).
Problems such as flow induced noise require a high degree of turbulence resolution. However, thanks to sufficient computing power on our cluster or cloud computing, such issues can be handled efficiently. Vibro-acoustic problems, as well as flow induced vibro-acoustics can be modeled with simulation tools like COMSOL, Star-CCM+ or even ANSYS Fluent.
