Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful engineering simulation that allows us to evaluate gas or liquid behavior and how it interacts with the objects around it. Design of flow systems not only need to meet industry standards and safety regulations; we can take it one step further to predict the lifespan of equipment, optimize the design and maximize the service life. By preventing failures and increasing the life of equipment, computational fluid dynamics can save both money and lives.
Sound like an exaggeration? Allan R. Nelson Engineering once took on a case where a pinprick hole in a fracking pumping system created such a intense jet of fluid it killed a worker standing near. Proper computational fluid dynamics analysis was what we used to identify the failure, and if applied before the incident, could have saved a life. Let us help you avoid this kind of failure with CFD.
