Support for the design of the Almudévar reservoir

The pumping and turbine running storage tank of a reservoir is a hydraulic infrastructure, typically located at the base of the reservoir, where water is stored to serve as [...]

Support for lighting design in a shop window

NablaDot has contributed using fluid simulation to the lighting design in a shop window. This work has been carried out in collaboration with Efitekna – Efficient Technology for an [...]

Refrigeration of electrical equipment

A typical application of fluid simulation is modelling the cooling of electrical (e.g. pumps) or electronic (computer clusters) equipment. This type of equipment can suffer damage or malfunction (decrease in efficiency)

Digital twins for cities, getting closer and closer. The wind at the ‘Plaza del Pilar’

Digital twins for cities emerge as tools to assist urban planning of cities. The digital twin of a city is generally made up of a three-dimensional model, sensors located [...]

Digital twin for a biomass boiler (DT4Biomass Project)

The DT4Biomass project received a grant from the European Union within the call H2020-INNOSUP-2018-2019 (To better support innovation in SMEs). Thanks to this grant, we hired an expert person [...]

The transition to sustainable fuel

The climate targets set for 2030 and 2050 will progressively compel to use sustainable fuels in combustion facilities for the generation of steam, electricity or other uses. Solid biomass, [...]

Flue gas flow in a biomass boiler

Computational Fluid Dynamics for biomass boilers The Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a very useful tool to study relevant aspects in the design of a biomass boiler such as [...]

Pathway to the smart oven

Our participation in the project Cloudifacturing The digital tool presented here was developed in the framework of the European project Cloudifacturing by a consortium led by EndeF, S.L. (manufacturer and installer of [...]

The challenge of simulating combustion and heat transfer in a boiler: a chamber and 10000 pipes

The challenge of simulating a boiler The application of CFD to boilers has limited most of the times to the furnace (the area where the combustion takes place), not [...]

Valves and CFD simulation

Valves are elements where computational fluid dynamics has been usually applied: their desing, characterization (calculation of flow coefficients) or the study of cavitation (prevention and calculation of coefficients, such [...]
