Institut für Energietechnik (IET)

Computational Fluid Dynamics

With the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), complex processes and operations of Thermodynamics and Fluid Dynamics can be analysed, understood and visualized.

Through CFD simulations it is possible to optimize individual components, whole products or entire systems on the computer, which then dramatically reduces the number of time consuming and costly experiments. The IET has extensive knowledge and practical experience in the field of CFD in the industrial environment. We can competently advise and support you in your simulation projects.

The main CFD tools which we use are:

  • ANSYS (CFX und Fluent)
  • OpenFOAM
