CFD

Computational Fluid Dynamics Since the 1950s, with the development of computers, an interdisciplinary subject between mathematics, fluid mechanics and computers, the main research content is to solve the governing equations of fluid mechanics by computer and numerical methods. Fluid mechanics problems are simulated and analyzed.

The chemical industry is the most concentrated basic industry for fluid mechanics applications. Computational fluid dynamics (and related technologies have developed rapidly in recent years. The wide application of CFD technology has opened up a vast space for the overall technological progress in the chemical industry, and many cannot be quantified and visualized. The technical problems, under the influence of CFD, have obtained clear answers and created considerable economic and social benefits.

The research group combined with the specific engineering project, applied computational fluid dynamics to optimize the design of the oil transfer line, the distillation column, the baffle plate heat exchanger, etc., and achieved good results.
