Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

Computational Fluid Dynamics is used to simulate the effect of fluid and heat in, or around, a given assembly.

Using ANSYS® CFX and ANSYS® Fluent as the main CFD solver toolsets, PDL engineers continue to develop new and innovative analysis methodologies to explicitly model previously unachievable effects or conditions, namely the Joule Thomson effect in subsea choke valves, the use of real gas properties in multi-phase gas flows and a fully-coupled model to illustrate the fluid structure interaction (FSI) in a hydraulically actuated subsea isolation valve.

Recognised as being experts in CFD, PDL engineers have provided complementary CFD support on some of the most technically challenging projects to some of the most notable national and international oil & gas, nuclear and renewable energy companies.
