XFlow CFD can model even the largest structures and flow problems with little more setup time required than for much smaller cases, making it ideal for a varity of civil and architectureal applications.
Application Areas Include:
External Aerodynamics: The virtual wind tunnel module enables you to simulate full-scale models and set inlet turbulence intensity and analytical expressions to describe the incoming wind profile. XFlow simulations allow you to measure wind loads on buildings, bridges and other civil structures, analyze the air flow around them, or study the transport of pollutants.
Roof Structures: It is common to simulate the loads over stadium or large building roof structures, and XFlow can provide averaged pressure distributions and transient data of maximum and minimum peaks. XFlow CFD simulation of wind and roof loads on Bernabeu stadium, Madrid.
HVAC and Thermal Comfort: XFlow CFD can be used to simulate the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems of indoor spaces. With the help of sensors to monitor the flow variables in specified locations, XFlow becomes an effective tool to optimize the location of HVAC devices for thermal comfort.
Dams, Flood Analysis, and Offshore Structures: XFlow CFD includes free surface modeling that can be used to analyze loads on structures such as:
