Heat Transfer Simulations for Turbomachinery Including FSI Effect with Coupled FEA & CFD
FEA & CFD Based Simulation Design Analysis Virtual prototyping MultiObjective Optimization
Most machines, such as high-heat turbines (gas and steam), boilers, and combustors for example, require strict control of thermal stresses and expansions. Due to the very particular nature of heat transfer, establishing this control can be both tedious and time consuming. With using CFD tools such as MSC Cradle, Ansys Fluent, Siemens Star-ccm+ and FEA Tools such as Abaqus, Nastran and LS-DYNA, with experienced engineers, we can calculate parameters of heat transfer between components, outer and inner gas flow to determine temperatures, relative thermal displacements, and thermal stresses.
For real world simulation, many elements have to be taken into consideration, in particular, the diversity of flow configurations and applications; the complexity of geometries and physics, the requirements for multidisciplinary analysis and optimization including conjugate heat transfer (CHT) coupling flow and heat transfer: fluid-structure interactions (FSI); fluid-chemistry and multiphase interactions, as in combustion; aero-acoustics coupling flow and noise.
We can calculate a wide spectrum of heat-related calculations, including startup and shutdown cycles, thermal warp effects on static elements (casings and exhaust hoods), on shafts, heat transfer analysis, warp and displacement of ceilings. We can also help you calculate predictions of a machine’s behavior on transient operational modes with high-fidelity modeling, closer to the real behavior of products..

Finite Element Analysis of Durability and Fatigue Life: Ansys Ncode, Simulia FE-Safe
The demand for simulation of fatigue and durability is especially strong. Durability often dominates development agendas, and empirical evaluation is by its nature time-consuming and costly. Simulation provides a strategic approach to managing risk and cost by enabling design concepts or design changes to be studied before investment in physical evaluation. The industry-leading fatigue Simulation technology such as Simulia FE-SAFE, Ansys Ncode Design Life and FEMFAT used to calculate fatigue life of multiaxial, welds, short-fibre composite, vibration, crack growth, thermo-mechanical fatigue.
