Impact of Nozzle Shape on the Dynamics of Turbulent Jets. CFD provides an economical way to rapidly test the dispersion and flow effects of various nozzle prototypes.
Atmospheric wind blowing over an unloaded bulkhead flat rail car. Decoupled bulkhead flat cars are prone to unwanted aerodynamic drag effects. CFD provides a virtual wind tunnel to characterize drag coefficient vs. wind speed curves.
High-resolution Turbulence Simulation of Airflow through a Wind Fence. A fundamental 'small-scale' understanding is critical when designing and optimizing large indstrial-scale designs.
Large Eddy Simulation of Turbulent Water Flow through a Gate Valve. A dynamic meshing approach allows gate movement. Flow patterns, pressure distribution, and hydrodynamic forces on the gate are readily computed. The effect of closing speed and gate cangle are readily investigated to reduce undesired flow behaviors.
Turbulent Flow Simulation of Water Flow Through a Partially Closed Ball Valve.
MRIGlobal uses computational fluid dynamics (CFD) as a
research tool to perform numerical experiments in order to better understand
the interactions and flow physics within unique systems. The most important aspects of diffusion,
convection, turbulence, hydrodynamic stability, flow separation, etc., can be
analyzed numerically. Fluid flow
problems are inherently nonlinear, often involve complicated geometries, and
are typically coupled with other physical processes. In these cases, the flows are not amenable
to an analytic mathematical solution, and must be investigated via CFD, which
is the study of fluid flows by numerical simulation.
