Advanced Particle Simulation

Get detailed insights into your particle system or porous media structure by our CFD services and reveal new optimization potentials.

There is a multitude of technical systems involving particulate material or porous structures, such as packed and fluidized beds, dust firing or exhaust gas treatment. Particle-laden flows are complex and mostly multi-physical by nature due to superposition of turbulent flow, particle interactions, heat and mass transfer as well as chemistry. Cutting-edge system improvement presupposes detailed knowledge and comprehension of the underlying processes. We offer unique insights into hardly accessible processes and a variety of simulation approaches well suited for each project situation.

Numerical Simulation of In-cylinder Processes: Options and Opportunities

A multitude of today’s technical applications comprises particulates or porous media, e. g. solid fuel combustionplants or exhaust gas after treatment systems. We are highly dedicated and versed in handling the intricacies of physical and chemical processes in the presence of particles. We assist our customers with long-term experience in the field of particle-laden flows and our comprehensive expertise in using numerical methods, such as CFD and DEM. Amongst others, we support you with simulation and consulting services for:
  • Simulation of complete cycles including gas exchange and combustion
  • Biomass, waste and sewage sludge combustion plants
  • SCR catalysts
  • DeSOx plants (Scrubbers)

The Highest Level of Detail

Particle-laden flows often are a complex interplay of particle -particle as well as particle-fluid interactions, involving numerous forces but also heat and mass transfer. Besides, heterogeneous and homogeneous chemical processes might be system inherent and have to be captured adequately. Therefore, we offer our customers a widely applicable inhouse framework.

0D/Clogging of SCR Catalysts

Exhaust gas after treatment systems strive for highest conversion rates, a maximum efficiency as well as durability and also size reduction in case of mobile applications. For maritime SCR systems, there exist a clear conflict between durability and compactness, if the catalytic converter is exposed to high particle loads. In order to avoid longer downtimes or irreversible damage of the SCR system, an evaluation of the clogging risk during the design process is valuable. We are equipped with comprehensive knowledge about the fundamentals of deposit formation and offer CFD simulation techniques for clogging risk estimation.

Combustion Improvement

Emission abatement, fuel consumption as well as deposit formation and heat exchanger corrosion are central issues of many power plant operators. These are combustion inherent challenges, directly linked to the fuel conversion process and the fuel used. We possess expertise in thermochemical conversion of biomass, waste and sewage sludge and offer various simulation techniques ranging from fast-solving steady CFD to highly detailed CFD-DEM concepts for combustion analysis. With this, we can ensure to meet your project related requirements.
