Immergas: Using CAE to improve energy efficiency, reduce emissions and costs, and shorten time-to-market

Interview with engineer Luca Cavalli, from the advanced engineering team at Immergas


Founded in 1964 and headquartered in Brescello, Reggio Emilia in Italy, Immergas is the leading Italian provider of condensing boilers, designing and producing 200 different models on 10 production lines.
The company owns a second plant in Poprad, Slovakia where it manufactures entry-level appliances for emerging markets, and is launching a start-up in Iran to produce boiler models for Middle Eastern markets.

The company is consistently ranked among the leading European companies in the home Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) sector and owns nine sales subsidiaries in Europe, and one in China.

In this interview, engineer Luca Cavalli, of Immergas’ advanced engineering team, discusses the technical and business benefits the company has realised since first introducing Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) technologies into its R&D department in 1997.

Since then, the company has increased the number of CAE tools it uses, and also leverages a collaborative relationship with EnginSoft to support its CAE-led approach to the design and optimization of its products and production processes.

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.
