Fluid Dynamics Software Designs Coolers

Bronswerk Heat Transfer BV uses EFD.Pro general purpose engineering fluid dynamics software from Flomerics Ltd. (www.flomerics.com) to develop new air-cooled coolers and fans with the potential to aid industries requiring a "greener" solution. While traditionally such apparatus has a thermodynamic efficiency of up to 60 percent, designs based on the new fan achieve up to 80 percent efficiency. Bronswerk feels that engineering fluid dynamics is more practical than computational fluid dynamics and says generating information generated with EFD.Pro, especially for the complexity of cooler aerodynamics, is far beyond data obtainable through physical measurement and experimentation.
