We employ computational fluid dynamics to study complex fluid flows. Your fluid flow conditions can be creeping, laminar, turbulent, bubbly, multiphase and many more besides. Fluid types can be low speed, high speed, compressible, incompressible Newtonian, and non-Newtonian.

We can help to reduce your manufacturing design cycle and to minimise the need for expensive prototypes. We can do this by coupling optimisation algorithms to finite element, computational fluid dynamics and multiphysics simulation models.
We have extensive laboratory experience and we are expert practitioners in the testing and characterisation of a whole range of materials. We also do a lot of work involving heat and mass transport through porous structures where our workflows can be supported by Simpleware software which generates high-quality models and meshes from 3D image data (such as CT, micro-CT etc,) which are then suitable for FEA and/or CFD analysis.
In many instances it is necessary to support our calculations using high performance computing (HPC) resources. Our Enterprise account with Rescale gives us instant access to the world's largest HPC infrastructure in the cloud.
We use the discrete element method to model the motion and interaction of large collections of discrete entities. Examples include granular flows, powder processing and the mechanics of soil excavation and transport.
