Increasing Mixing in Microchannels using Design Optimization
Posted Fri January 20, 2017 @05:03PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application The latest blog post from Flow Science discusses optimizing microchannel geometry using the design optimization software, CAESES®, from Friendship Systems GmbH.

Mixing fluids can be very important in the design of miniaturized chemical and biochemical analysis systems. However, the mixing of fluids at the micro-scale is challenging because of an inherent lack of any mechanism to induce the mixing.

Application Mixing different fluids with potentially different properties remains one of the most important and potentially costly industrial processes. In this Flow Science article, we complete our presentation of the newly-redesigned particle model in FLOW-3D v11.2 and take a fresh look into one of the most common and essential industrial processes: mixing.

Application Pumped hydro energy storage (PHES) is currently the only proven large-scale (>100 MW) energy storage technology. The benefits of PHES on electrical system operations are well documented in textbooks and journals. The flexible generation of PHES can provide upregulation and downregulation in power systems. Furthermore, the quick start capabilities of PHES make it suitable for black starts and for the provision of spinning and standing reserves.

Application Selective laser melting (SLM) is a 3D-printing process to create three-dimensional metal parts by fusing fine metal powders together. SLM finds wide applications in aerospace and medical orthopedics industry.

A new Flow Science blog post describes setting up an SLM model using FLOW-3D fluid particle capabilities, one of the new particle classes in the particle model.

'Corkscrew' Shape of Blood Flow in Heart's Upper Chamber May Signal Lower Stroke Risk
Posted Tue November 29, 2016 @02:34PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Using specialized CT scans of a healthy heart and one with heart disease, a team of Johns Hopkins cardiologists and biomedical engineers say they’ve created computer models of the “shape” of blood flow through the heart’s upper left chamber that someday may help predict stroke risk.
