CFD CO Concentration analysis of Lodha Luxuria Residential Building, Thane

CFD CO Concentration analysis of Lodha Luxuria Residential Building Car Parking Basement, Thane

The objective of this project is to examine the effectiveness of the planned ductless ventilation system in the car park basement of Century 21 Mall to prevent CO poisoning by keeping the CO concentration level below the prescribed safety limits.CFD simulations can predict stagnation region(which would have high CO concentration) by calculating the flow pattern of the basement. Initial simulation results showed high CO concentration caused due to stagnation region in the basement(Location and size of the stagnation region depends on geometry of the building and position of the inlet/outlet vents).Using calculated optimization techniques, the stagnation regions were removed by varying the jetfan positions. The final simulation(simulation using optimized jetfan locations) results showed reduced CO concentration and effective flow pattern. The simulations are made as per ASHRAE standards. (CO simulations can also be done for duct ventilation system).

CFD analysis of academic block, Loyola Institute of Technology

CFD analysis of academic block, Loyola Institute of Technology

The academic block is located inside LOYOLA Institute of Technology. The class rooms and lecture halls in the academic block are designed to be naturally ventilated. Computational Fluid Dynamics was used to analyse the effectiveness of the naturally ventilation. The simulation was carried out based on the details provide by the client and also based on the climatic data(wind velocity, temperature and humidity) obtained by different methods. The results showed high temperature and humidity in certain region of the basement. Based on the result the client has made extensive changes in the building to increase the comfort level of the students.

CFD Smoke Simulation of City Center mall, Raipur

CFD Smoke Simulation of City Center mall car Parking basement, Raipur

The objective of this project is to examine the effectiveness of the ductless ventilation system in case of fire and provide the client with data that would be useful in optimizing the fire safety system. In case of fire break out, most of the fatalities are caused by smoke poisoning and not directly by the fire. So it's up to the ventilation system to effectively remove the smoke and maintain enough visibility for evacuation and firefighting efforts to carry on. (Smoke simulations can also be done for jet fan ventilation system).

SPECIFICATIONS
The simulation was carried out using fire size of 4MW(based on the geometry of the basement) and octane as the fuel. An optimized fire curve which closely simulates automobile fire in a basement, was used for a duration of 0 to 10 minutes.

Optimizing wind environment around buildings

Optimizing wind environment around buildings

A single high-rise building can cause aerodynamic disturbances around it (particularly in the downstream region) which causes strain on the building and its neighbors. The building design plays a major part in causing this disturbance. CFD is used in predicting such aerodynamic instability and isolating the stress on the structure. This resulting data would help engineers / architects to consider these stresses and help in making the buildings safer.

CFD Thermal Comfort Simulation of JK Tyres Building

CFD Thermal Comfort Simulation of JK Tyres Building

The objective of the project is to check and optimize the designed duct ventilation system at the PCR Curing area of JK Tyres building. Due to this process and its machineries there is an increase in temperature in the area which would result in discomfort for the workers and decrease in productivity. It is the job of the ventilation system to provide adequate air circulation and to reduce the temperature around the work stations. Based on the details provided by the client, CFD thermal comfort simulation was carried out and with the help of the results the ventilation system was optimized.

CFD Analysis of Earth to Air Heat Exchanger System (ETAHE or ETAHX)

CFD Analysis of Earth to Air Heat Exchanger System (ETAHE or ETAHX)

Primary objective:

  1. To calculate the outlet temperature of the fluid and to optimize the efficiency of the ETAHE by changing the variables.

  2. Parametric study of the optimized ETAHE

Assumptions
  1. Air in soil is a poor conductor. (It reduces the efficiency of solid and liquid phases to conduct heat)

  2. Solid phase has the highest conductivity. (Variability of solid moisture that largely determines thermal conductivity)

Optimizing the design of a 20m fishing trawler for JJ Marines

Optimizing the design of a 20m fishing trawler for JJ Marines

The fishing trawler built by JJ Marines has 350hp engine and an average speed of 10knots but even after upgrading the engine to 450 hp the trawler couldn't reach the desired speed of 12knots. As per the clients request CFD simulations were done to optimize the design to reach the desired speed without any loss in stability.

Numerical weather prediction

The objective of this project is to develop a numerical model (Global Climate Model) based on Navier- Stokes equation to predict planetary atmospheric changes to help counter the rapid change in climate during the recent years. It is more a research than a commercial project aimed at providing a humble help for a greater cause. Species transport in the Global Climate Models (GCM) will help predict carbon dioxide changes and help to isolate changes caused by anthropogenic emissions. The model does not predict oceanic changes but its effects are approximated for the simulation.

Welcome to Flowturb Solutions
FlowTurb Solutions

The name Flowturb Solutions was inspired by one of the most complex and fascinating physical phenomenon, fluid turbulence. Fluid plays an important part in our everyday endeavors more than we have ever realized. We have adapted over selves so well to our environment that we do not realize, we are living in an ocean of air. From complex super sonic flows over space crafts to simple flow inside a conduit, fluid plays an vital part in every field of engineering. To understand fluid behavior would be the key in understanding any mechanism/system that is related to it.

Flowturb provides assistance to industries in understanding this complex behavior of fluids using state of the art research tools like Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis. We also provide numerical simulations for structural (FEA).
