CFD can be very effective for detecting possible problems within equipment and for testing out possible design fixes. CFD performs very well with large turbulent flows and also with laminar flows. Flows in the transition range require more care.

When doing CFD models of equipment, important considerations are modeling the exact unit geometry, finishing the modeling on time, and presenting the results very clearly. Flow Simulations, Inc. achieves these by being careful about unit geometry and dimensions. Prior to running the models clients are provided with a black & white line drawing of the CFD model for review and approval purposes. Small changes in the unit geometry can also be easily made at this point, often without any additional cost. Result graphics are fully described and are provided in sufficient quantity so that you can understand what's occurring in the equipment.
