SLR Computational Fluid Dynamics

Computational Fluid Dynamics

SLR Consulting has been providing cutting edge creative aerodynamic and thermodynamic solutions, design and design optimisation services for major CFD projects using world leading CFD (Computational fluid dynamics) and CAD (Computer Aided Design) software combined with customised user defined functions for industrial process engineering projects.

SLR's Advanced Computational Group offers a full range of advanced modelling services needed to model flow, turbulence, heat transfer, and chemical reactions. We use CFD analysis and other numerical techniques to understand airflow behaviour, promote innovative solution and get the design right the first time. We have extensive experience in modelling mechanical, chemical and environmental processes. SLR Services include:

  • Pollutant dispersal and air quality analysis inside and around buildings to ensure compliance with International and Australian Standards
  • Heating and Ventilation (including thermal comfort modelling in accordance with ASHRAE and ISO Standards)
  • Airchange Effectiveness Studies to Satisfy Green Star Approval Issues
  • Atrium Specification
  • Aeroacoustic and Aerodynamics
  • Pressure Drop, Separation and Process Plant Filtration Systems
  • 3-D multiphase and chemical reactions, eg for boilers, reactors, condensers and cooling towers
  • Duct flow visualisation, improvement of flow conditions such as pressure loss, velocity distribution,turbulence and energy dissipation
  • Fire hazard, fire simulation and smoke analysis
  • Moving body airflow simulations (Turbines and Fans, Pumps, Mixtures)
  • Environmental wind and wind-induced loading
  • Waste water transportation system
  • Chemical and process industry cooling systems
  • Pressure relief systems for gas networks
  • Pump and associated vibration simulations
  • Design, analysis and research of large diameter turbine rotors and wind tunnel testing 
  • Wind turbine design optimisation
  • Incompressible and compressible flow simulations
  • Fluid flow and structure coupling using CFD and FEA Codes
  • Newtonian and non-Newtonian flow
  • Customised user defined function for specific applications
