Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
Whilst many will offer Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) as a one off solution, our team can offer not only CFD simulation we can also deliver real time wind tunnel testing support and optimisation utilising our F1 network.
The PES team’s pedigree is firmly embedded in high performance and extreme environments where Aerodynamic design is a key factor in optimising performance, from Formula 1, MotoGP, Olympic Sport, Aerospace and Maritime, we can deliver the performance efficiency you require.
Aerodynamics is a common application and one of PES teams core areas of expertise. CFD allows the steady-state and transient aerodynamics of HVAC systems, vehicles, aircraft, buildings, structures, wings and rotors to be computed with extremely high levels of accuracy.
System properties such as mass flow rates and pressure drops and fluid dynamic forces such as lift, drag and pitching moment can be readily calculated in addition to the wake effects. This data can be used directly for design purposes or as in input to a detailed stress analysis.
CFD simulation offers the ability to conduct comprehensive, automated, multi-point optimisation of designs. This process allows engineers to automatically optimise a design to a given set of performance parameters and can be used to minimise drag, or maximise mass flow or lift forces to given targets.
PES provides analyses ranging from simple wind load estimations to comprehensive design and optimisation of aeronautical, sports equipment or automotive vehicle geometries.
Typical CFD Simulations include:
◊ Building & Structure Wind Loading
◊ Vortex Shedding
◊ External Aerodynamics of Vehicles
