The mining and steel sector has several processes in which Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can be used as an auxiliary tool in the design of equipment and processes, as well as in the analysis of existing ones, with the aim of improving and increasing efficiency. The sector’s constant search for technologies capable of improving performance, makes computer simulation technology the ideal tool for significant gains.
There are several applications of 3D computer simulations for performance gains.
Among the applications, we can highlight:
Analysis of tailings dams for better safety.
Flow analysis in pipelines to reduce losses.
Thermal efficiency analysis in equipment such as blast furnaces, for better energy efficiency.
Simulation to improve the energy efficiency of thermal control.
