Savvy separators: An introduction to CFD for separator design

Dividing wall column (DWC) technology is becoming more widely accepted throughout the process industries as a means to increase efficiency and reduce capital and energy costs.

Read, A., Siemens

If you work in the field of process and separation, chances are you have come across computational fluid dynamics (CFD). CFD produces a wide range of emotions ranging from abject fear, often involving flashbacks to a long-forgotten university class and a dizzying array of partial-differential equations, to curiosity and even enthusiasm. The purpose of this work is to help you become an educated consumer of CFD. Many would start by asking: Why and when should I care about CFD? The following will provide a brief introduction to CFD, answers to some frequently asked questions, and a case study of CFD and automated design exploration being applied to a cyclone separator—all of which will be ach
