Reaction Engineering with Advanced Simulation
Posted Monday August 24 at 9:51am
CD-adapco will host Reaction Engineering with Advanced Simulation on September 24th.

In this webinar we continue to investigate the multiphase flow phenomenon within reactors in more detail. For example, in a trickle bed reactor the flow regime depends on many complex factors, if not accounted for this can lead to poor micro and macro distribution, resulting in catalyst activity loss and failure to meet product specifications.

CFD for Dispersed Multiphase Flows
Posted Monday August 17 at 2:39pm
ERCOFTAC will host CFD for Dispersed Multiphase Flows on 1-2 October, 2015 at Imperial College, London, UK.

The simultaneous presence of several different phases in external or internal flows such as gas, liquid and solid is found in daily life, environment and numerous industrial processes. These types of flows are termed multiphase flows, which may exist in different forms depending on the phase distribution.

CFD as a Part of Total Air Conditioning System Energy Management
Posted Wednesday August 12 at 10:51am
The importance of air conditioning energy conservation is often a secondary consideration, compared to our comfort, until we realize a negative impact. In Japan, energy consumption by residential and commercial buildings was found to consume one third of the total energy used by the entire country. Of this, half of commercial energy use was from air conditioning.

Japan's limited natural resources makes it imperative to conserve energy. Hence, optimizing air conditioning performance and energy usage are critical.
