Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Consultancy


Swift TG Solutions is an integrated CFD consultancy with a vast knowledge of fluid dynamics. Whether you need detailed analysis, are new to CFD or require CFD support, Swift TG Solutions is here to help. We can help you: evaluate, validate and optimise your system's performance, reduce product development time and testing costs, test product performance prior to production.
 
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), also referred to as flow simulation, is a computer simulation technique that allows detailed analysis of fluid flow through any product. It allows the fluid mass flow, velocity, density, temperature, pressure, concentration or any derived fluid property to be calculated at all locations within the flow field. The interaction of the fluid with its solid boundaries, such as fluid-dynamic forces and heat transfer rates can also be calculated accurately for use in stress analysis.
 
By using CFD techniques, you will be able to verify if your product will conform to a client's specifications, which greatly improves the product development process.  CFD can be used to: calculate design mass flow rates, pressure drops and heat transfer rates together with fluid dynamic forces - lift, drag and pitching moments.
 
With the latest developments in CFD analysis, it is now easy to embed CFD into the design process at an early stage. As soon as a CAD model is reasonabbly realistic, CFD analysis can be conducted to check for flow or thermal issues. This means that the design can be changed and optimised very early on, saving time and money.Prototype and eliminate problems before they appear.

Take a look at the Swift TG Solutions methodology that we adopt for each study for a greater understanding of our CFD processes.

Swift TG Solutions provides CFD consultancy services for a variety of industry sectors including Oil & Gas, Aerodynamics and Renewables. 

CFD Services: Renewables


With the World facing scarcity of fossil fuels, engineers need to find new technologies that will aid the production of electricity cleanly and efficiently in the future.
 
CFD allows engineers to model and predict fluid and air flow, giving them valuable insight into designs for wind turbines, water driven turbines and fuel cells. 
 
By using CFD in the development of these technologies, the design times are reduced, costs are kept to a minimum and the efficiency of the final product is improved. 
 
Swift TG Solutions use CFD, alongside other groundbreaking technologies, providing innovative tools to meet energy challenges of the future.

Swift TG Solutions CFD Methodology


Swift TG Solutions follows the following process for CFD analysis:
 
  • CAD data: the entry point for CFD simulation is CAD data, which can be supplied by the client, or by Swift TG Solutions CAD consultancy.
  • Prepare CFD simulations: Swift TG Solutions will then define and set up physical and numerical models and impose operating conditions
  • Run CFD simulations: Swift TG Solutions run the CFD simulations. Calculations are run on multi-processor machines for parallel acceleration. This is done until convergence is obtained for steady-state flows or for an allocated time for time-resolved, unsteady flows.
  • Produce solutions through analysis: the data from the simulations is then analysed. Through detailed investigation in 3D of the calculated data and reports on important quantities, which may be local and in real time, or time and space averaged, the main fluid and energy flow features are extracted. Graphs, flow visualisation of streamlines or velocity vector fields, and contour maps of variables such as pressure, temperature and velocity fields are also produced, tracking the evolution of these quantities during the simulations. In a gradual approach and as part of the process of deriving a solution, the choice of physical models will often be refined along with the meshing specifications during a study, starting with simpler modelling. This can then instruct further detailing, depending on the results of the analysis or as a design becomes final.
