Numerical simulations using commercial CFD software

We use the commercial CFD packages Fluent and PolyFlow to solve the unsteady flow patterns in oscillatory flow conditions.

Simulation of flow through a OFM mesoreactor tube
Figure 1. 3-D flow patterns in a 5.0 mm i.d., periodically constricted tube where the fluid is periodically oscillated at f=10 Hz and x0=1 mm as resolved with Fluent’s solver.
