Detailed simulations of flow and temperature during heat transfer processes provide insights into how geometrical properties can be changed to increase performance.

Our R&D activities in the field of »Detailed Simulations of Heat Transfer« comprise the following:

  • Use of simulations to optimize heat-transfer structures in terms of energy and flow parameters
  • Simulation of coupled phenomena using finite elements software
    • Heat and mass transfer
    • Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
  • Development of designs
