Evaporation and condensation are important in a plethora of technical processes - from fogging windshields to drying processes, clean rooms, sensors, medical devices and photolitography. Our custom solver has it all covered - including full support of conjugate heat transfer effects! We can literally calculate the amount of energy flowing between your condensing breath on the surface of a mirror and the mirror itself when it is fogging up.
Whether condensation/evaporation is desired in your application (for example in drying processes), whether it needs to be prevented (e.g. on optical glass), or whether it even involves freezing / melting or de-/sublimation - we are happy to take on your project. In our simulations, we can calculate all heat flows between solids, gases and all surfaces. Additionally, our solver is not restricted to only water; we can work with solvents and any other substances, as long as a phase diagram is available.

Our fast fire solver ffire is accurate enough to pass the Steckler Room test, and - importantly - two orders of magnitude faster than the most commonly used solvers. This makes it an excellent tool for engineering prediction simulations, e.g. for ventilation planning. In most cases, the solver will produce results overnight. We fully support buoyancy and can include custom-time-dependent fires. The solver is complemented by our rendering know-how, used to visualize survivability and visibility.
Software services for and around CFD
Not only do we create custom solvers, we are also happy to work with you on visualizations and even custom-data formats, since we do have ample experience with both, gained through various customer projects over the years.
