and Marcus Reis,
Modern, efficient and innovative, CIBER is located in Porto Alegre, Brazil and has as its core business the manufacture and sale of machinery and equipment for road construction and maintenance.
Experimental development of portable asphalt plant components requires time and is an expensive process. In order to offer products with lower energy consumption and more compact dimensions, and that meet environmental regulations, CIBER chose CFX-5 computational fluid dynamics software to assist in analyzing many of the complex processes involved in asphalt production. These processes include combustion, solids drying, liquid and solid mixture, solid-air separation and filtration and pneumatic transport of particles.
