Pressure loss in duct using CFD

Engineering challenge Heating, Ventilation, and Air-conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings and other enclosed spaces are crucial for creating a comfortable and healthy indoor environment. These HVAC systems always require duct systems to deliver air. To increase the energy efficiency of the fans in HVAC systems, the pressure loss of the duct network should be minimized, which would require accu...

Evaluation of check valve using CFD

Engineering challenge: Check valves are widely used within the nuclear industry to prevent back flow and by doing so protect sensitive components such as pumps or prevent inadvertent draining of tanks. A check valve is a passive component that admits flow in one direction only. An ideal check valve will close exactly when the flow is reversed. However in reality some back flow often occurs and whe...

What is open-source?

Open source software is software whose source code is available for modification or enhancement by anyone.Programmers who have access to a computer program’s source code can improve that program by adding features to it or fixing parts that don’t always work correctly.Open source software licenses promote collaboration and sharing because they allow other people to make modifications to source...
