Analysis of Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (S-CO2) Power Cycles

Application Pointwise has published the case study, Application of Pointwise T-Rex Meshing and CFD Modeling to the Analysis of Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (S-CO2) Power Cycles showing how Pointwise, by greatly simplifying and speeding up the meshing process was critical to the successful modeling of an S-CO2 compressor test bed system.

Sponsor CFD Review

In 2018, a team of engineers at CRAFT Tech set out to model an experimental supercritical carbon dioxide (S-CO2) compressor configuration. The power cycle analysis, which would provide important insights into the design of high-efficiency components for power generation, required modeling of flow transitioning between liquid and gas phases and high-resolution meshing of geometries. The engineers needed software that would resolve flow gradients with a minimum number of grid points and be flexible enough to provide the best grid for each region of the machine that they were modeling. They found both these solutions in Pointwise.

Read the case study:

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) today – reliably generating high-fidelity meshes. The company's Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured, overset and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers such as ANSYS FLUENT®, STAR-CCM+®, OpenFOAM®, and SU2 as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac, and has a scripting language, Glyph, that can automate CFD meshing. Manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide have relied on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution since 1994.
