CFD and Optimization
Grundfos Center, Poul Due Jensens Vej 23, 8850 Bjerringbro, see map
Wednesday 3. October 2012, 9.00 - 16.30


DANSIS invites you to a seminar on how CFD can be used with methods for optimization. During the last two decades CFD has been helping engineers in specifying optimum design of fluid mechanical equipment. CFD has developed into an efficient and reliable tool for quantifying performance for each single design tested, but has been capable of giving any directions to the optimization process. Therefore the process of optimization has however traditionally required a tedious testing of a large number of different designs extending the time to market for new products. Driven by advances in structural mechanics formal methods for design optimization has now been starting to emerge in CFD tools. This seminar will give you an insight to state-of-the-art in CFD and optimization illustrated with actual industrial applications and will also give a guess to the near-future developments in joining the two technologies.
