They imported a computer aided design (CAD) file containing the geometry of the fryer into FIDAP
and created a three-dimensional CFD model with 500,000 cells.
The consultant used FIDAP
to create a quasi 3D finite element model of their initial concept design with about 300,000 elements.
The model was developed in FIDAP
Version 7.50 running on a R4400 Indigo workstation from Silicon Graphics, Inc.
To that end, a "QSO" adjustable-flow poppet valve (supplied by Great Lakes Feed-screws, Tecumseh, Mich.), which allows adjustment of the clearances for each material to be run, was modeled and evaluated with FIDAP
two-dimensional finite-element fluid-analysis software from Fluid Dynamics International, Evanston, Ill.
Fluid Dynamics International's FIDAP
Fluid Dynamics Analysis Package is also based on the finite element method and can be used to simulate a wide range of fluid flows, including heat and mass transfer effects.
[23-25] investigated dispersive and distributive mixing in the kneading region of TSEs using commercially available flow analysis software (FIDAP
) and demonstrated that the shear stresses that develop during distributive mixing and elongational flow components are important.
Hardware: PC or Unix workstation with the Fluent or Fidap
flow modeling software.
Icepak's CFD solver employs the same computational engine used in FDI's general-purpose FIDAP
system, which was established more than 10 years ago and has more than 600 worldwide licenses.
Two such commercial packages have seen use in a plastics setting: Fidap
from Fluid Dynamics Inc.
A key feature of Revision 6.0 of FIDAP
, a finite element program for the analysis of incompressible viscous fluid flow with heat and mass transfer, is a new technique for solving flow equations.
