In the last 30 years, Cadfluid has developed solutions for different industrial, technological, environmental, and biomedical problems, some of them are listed below.
Some of the sectors for which Cadfluid is working or is able to work.
Our expertise lies in the analysis of flow and heat and mass transfer, with or without chemical reaction in systems, equipment and processes of scientific, technological, industrial, environmental and/or biomedical interest, by means of theoretical, computational (CFD) and experimental tools.
Computational fluid dynamics: Cadfluid Solutions have wide experience in the use of CFD software both commercial and open source, for research and industrial applications as well as for experimental problems. According to the requirements and the needs of the problem, the center selects the most adequate existing code, or it develops his own calculation code.
Experimental fluid dynamics: experimental reproduction is required both for results validation as well as for validation of the approximations used in CFD, as a first step in the scale-up of models for their implementation in an industrial plant. Cadfluid has lab spaces, equipment and resources for the construction and validation of experimental equipment, as well as proprietary visualization techniques.
Software development: most of the numerical modelization and data analysis carried out by Cadfluid is done with codes developed by the center. These codes have been developed to meet customer requirements, and they can be delivered to be used by the customer, after being adapted to their system and needs.
Cadfluid has developed a package of numerical simulation to predict, during the design stage of a printed circuit board, the temperature field from the circulating electric current and elements of the circuit. This tool is used in the electronics industry to validate the design of printed circuit board in a faster way, improving the design and providing a faster and more reliable step towards product development.
Cadfluid participated in the study of the environmental impact previous to the construction of the combined cycle plant “Plana dels Vents”. From the numerical modelization of the pollution dispersion, the orography and the weather conditions, recommendations on the most adequate dimensions of the chimney stacks of the plant were proposed, in order to minimize the environmental impact. These recommendations were incorporated into the project, and were applied during the construction of the plant.
Cadfluid Solutions – Center of Advanced Fluid Dynamics works to put the knowledge in Mechanics of Fluids and Turbulence at the service of people and companies. It is an initiative that emerged from the consolidated research group ECoMMFiT, one of the leading groups in Spain in the modeling and simulation of turbulence and heat and mass transfer phenomena.
The center incorporates 19 people, including 9 senior researchers, 2 project researchers and 5 junior researchers.
The resources available to the center include 3 laboratories of 50m2 each, an open jet wind tunnel, experimental equipment, visualization and recording equipment, commercial and in house software, computational equipment, as well as access to shared computational equipment.
