Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Modeling

GCT utilizes proprietary and in-house mathematical models for process simulation to optimize system design of gas handling systems and secondary fume control systems in process plants. We use Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) models as an effective design tool to predict the performance of gas handling systems for process plants. CFD provides the means to compare the relative performance of several design scenarios. Specific benefits of our CFD modeling techniques include:

  • Predicting heat and contaminant exposure levels
  • Evaluating performance of ventilation systems in process plants
  • Predicting airflow patterns and contaminant migration paths
  • Optimizing primary and secondary capture hood performance
  • Predicting and optimizing process gas mixing and combustion
  • Evaluating burner configuration and selection
