Events: Better Metal-Temperature Calculations Faster with Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT) and CFD
Posted Tue August 30, 2016 @11:24AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements CD-adapco will host Better Metal-Temperature Calculations Faster with Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT) and CFD on September 13th.

For power generation machinery involving three-dimensional, asymmetric hot fluid flows (such as gas turbines, steam turbines, turbochargers, heat exchangers, boilers, furnaces, etc.), Finite Element Analysis (FEA) will be required to assess whether those machines will be as durable as desired or instead prone to problems from thermal stress and fatigue. But why not use CHT with CFD to provide your FEA engineers with the most accurate metal temperatures possible, as inputs to their thermal stress calculations?
