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 [...]

Mixing and sedimentation in tanks

The problems related to the particle deposition in the tank of a gas desulfurization plant motivated this project, whose objective was to evaluate the mixing and stirring in the [...]

Evaluation of the wind resource

A typical example of a fluid simulation application is wind turbine micrositting or the evaluation of the wind potential in a particular area. To do that, we need to [...]

Optimizing flue-gas desulfurization plants

Description of the desulphurization process nablaDot has participated in projects destined to improve the efficiency of sulfur dioxide (SO2) capture in flue-gas desulfurization plants in thermal power stations. This [...]

Particle separation in a mill

In this project, the client wanted to modify the design of a rolling wheel in a coal mill to increase the air suction, besides optimizing the position of [...]

Optimizing pressure losses in ducts

The aim of this project was to reduce the pressure losses in the flue gas ducts of a thermal power station, by means of redesigning some existing baffles. [...]

Duct system simulator

Is it possible to simulate in a simple way a duct system composed of more than 200 inlets/outlets with their respective dampers? Is it possible to obtain a precise [...]

Particle separation in a cyclone

The aim of this project was to define the operation of a cyclone, which purpose is to separate particles dragged by an air flow, as a function of their [...]

Micrositing of Small Wind Turbines in Urban Environments

The aim of the project was the development of a computational tool, integrated in a cloud environment, capable of determine the wind potential in urban environments (both on [...]
