RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Research and development
The research and development division is comprised of a team of engineers that work with the best design software, prototype laboratories and test facilities.
Analytical results on new projects are compared with experimental tests to confirm the applied theories in order to offer the most effective solutions designated for the specific demands of the market.
We also work with external experts, consultants and universities to support project research and development.
Analysis of finished components provides data on structural behavior which, through differential equations, are used to calculate:
- Fatigue, stress
- Safety margins
- Modal analysis
blade with aerodynamic profile - checking the stresses
centrifugal rotor – deformation analysis
axial blade - flow simulation
temperature distribution in the flow
Through fluid dynamic modelling (Computational Fluid Dynamic - CFD) accurate calculation models can be created, allowing for complete behavioral simulation of the equipment being studied.
Through these calculation models, virtual prototypes can be generated that allow engineers to study various designs and projects, reducing the time needed to evaluate the performance aspects.
The effectiveness of the methodology allows for a quick definition of the geometries by limiting the number of physical prototypes that are then tested in the laboratory to determine the final design.
CFD is also used to analyze and design fans dealing with erosive flows, to find the best compromise between performance and durability.
CFD numerical simulations also enable the study of components of the system in which the fans will operate thus supporting the clients in their detailed design toward optimal integration of the equipment.
