CFD analysis for the evaluation of the air flow within a climate control unit

Considering the value of numerical analysis for new product design

ABSTRACT

Climaveneta SpA enlisted the support of EnginSoft to assess the possible advantages of using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis in its new product design process. The objective of the study was to create a virtual model of Climaveneta’s new ACU171 Expanded Close Control Unit and then match the numerical results with the experimental measures. Afterwards, the engineers tested some geometric modifications to optimize the distribution of the air flow velocity on the filter surface to improve the unit’s heat exchange properties. This brief technical article describes how the study was undertaken and the results obtained.

Improving the performance of shaped charges and passive ballistic protections

CAE models evaluated using two commercial solvers

In this technical article, the authors discuss the development of CAE models for simulating the behavior of shaped charges, devices used in various industrial sectors, against two types of target – a monolithic steel target and a multi-layer steel-ceramic target – in order to better understand the physics of penetration.
