Thermoflow V23

Since 1987, Thermoflow has been a leading developer of thermal engineering software for the power and cogeneration industries. Thermoflow’s first product, GT PRO, has grown to become the world’s most popular program for designing gas turbine-based plants.  By 2012, over 2150 users, at over 1250 sites in seventy five countries were using GT PRO, making an estimated one million-plus runs per year. Indeed, it may be reasonably assumed that virtually any gas turbine combined-cycle plant built anywhere in the world in the last 25 years has been modeled by GT PRO, whether by the owner, developer, financier, consultant, engineer, equipment manufacturer, constructor...

Flowmaster V7.9.2.3

Flowmaster Products Reduce development time and cost with 1D thermo-fluid system modeling. Flowmaster has been the tool of choice for 1D thermo-fluid simulation of pipework networks and systems for more than 20 years. Based on Don Miller’s “Internal Flow Systems,” Flowmaster is unrivaled in terms of accuracy, flexibility and cross-industry appeal due to its superior transient solver. Flowmaster delivers results you can trust from the earliest stages of the design process. Flowmaster is the leading general purpose 1D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solution for modeling and  analysis of fluid mechanics and pipe flow in complex systems early in the...

Solving a Port Flow Simulation in IC Engine

In this tutorial of port flow analysis, you will measure mass and angular momentum flux (swirl and tumble) for given cylinder head and intake port design over varying valve lifts of 2mm, 6mm and 10mm. You will create swirl monitor planes at 30 mm, 45 mm, and 60 mm below the cylinder head. The inlet, outlet and wall boundary conditions are as shown in the  Figure Problem Schematic. Initial conditions are pressure 101325 Pa and temperature 300 K. The tutorial illustrates the following steps in setting up and solving a port flow simulation of an IC engine. • Launch...

Solving a Cold Flow Simulation in IC Engine

A three dimensional single cylinder CFD simulation of a 4-stroke engine is performed under motored conditions (cold flow) in this tutorial. Detailed boundary conditions are shown in  Figure 1.1: Problem Schematic(p. 1). Engine simulation is started from Intake valve opening (IVO) followed by air flow during intake stroke. Air is compressed as piston moves towards top dead center ( TDC). This is followed by expansion of air as piston moves towards bottom Dead center (BDC). This tutorial ser ves as an intro-duction in releasing the streamlined workflow between pre-processing, solver and post processing while carrying out simulations with Fluent....

Rigid Body FSI of a Moored Vessel

This workshop utilities the 6 degrees-of-freedom rigid body solver  in CFX The rigid body solver will be used to simulate the movement of a  model-scale hull, moored within a water testing tank A homogeneous multi phase approach is taken to simulate the free surface A moving wall condition will be applied to generate some wave patterns and fluid-structure  interaction with the hull Overview The computational domain is rectangular and half-symmetric The hull is positioned to give sufficient space both fore and aft (for wave and wake generation) and in the beam direction The domain is open at the stern...
