Fluid Flow: Advanced flow dynamics analysis reduces design time for high-performance processes

For a process facility, guaranteeing maximum profit over its lifecycle while increasing safety and taking care of environmental aspects means continuous improvement toward operational excellence.

For a process facility, guaranteeing maximum profit over its lifecycle while increasing safety and taking care of environmental aspects means continuous improvement toward operational excellence. From this perspective, advanced process engineering makes an impact on each of the successive lifecycle stages shown in Fig. 1—feasibility, design, operation and upgrades. FIG. 1. Value-adding engineering use of advanced flow dynamic tools—CFD and dynamic simulation—at different stages of the process lifecycle. Modern design tools, such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) or dynamic simulation, are standard practice in many industrial sectors other t
