Chemical Process

Models in the CPI can be characterized by some very complex physical phenomena. This includes multi-phase flows (either dispersed or free surface), chemical reactions, and mass transfer. Multi-phase flows can be often be modeled using Fluent without modifications. For some cases the simulation must be time dependent for numerical stability.

Time dependent models require longer solution times. Chemical reactions and mass transfer between phases may also require custom subroutines to be written to interact with the CFD codes. We have done this on several occasions and are pleased to be able to offer these services.

For situations without complex physical phenomena or with a very low amount of secondary phase materials, the simulations can be performed much more quickly.
