Concurrent CFD enables users to conduct CFD analysis entirely within a mechanical CAD (MCAD) environment, where it is used concurrently with all the other tools in the normal menu structure. As a result, mechanical engineers can treat CFD as a routine operation where designs can be analyzed and optimized during the design process and deliver better, more reliable products in a shortened time scale.
A good example to demonstrate the complexities of flow fields and its ultimate influence on temperature management is a convection oven. Convection ovens can offer better cooking quality and lower energy consumption over conventional ovens. The enhanced heat transfer produced from the forced air movement results in reduced oven heating times.
However, airflow patterns within the oven are not uniform because the number of shelves, trays and the loading of items can have a significant impact on the flow patterns within the space and can result in un-even temperatures in different parts of the oven space.
To illustrate this, the presenter will demonstrate how the flow field within the oven may be simulated and visualized in detail, enabling the designer to better understand the oven's effectiveness.
Simulations of various tray-loading scenarios will be examined and design recommendations will be discussed.
