Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

Multotec offers Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), which uses numerical methods to detect and explain cyclone problems, including fluid flow. This helps you to understand cyclone behaviour and optimise its performance.

Benefits of using CFD:

  • Solves the Navier-Stokes equations iteratively on discrete elements using the boundary conditions
  • Simulates particle, liquid and air core interaction
  • Analyses and visualises flow patterns

Positron Emission Particle Tracking (PEPT) imaging technique is used to validate the CFD:

  • PEPT is used in nuclear (diagnostic) medicine
  • Detect coinciding events via a gamma spectroscopy system
  • Reconstruct corresponding trajectories
  • Build images and calculate volumes and sizes
  • Determine real-time, exact particle location
