Consulting

A GREAT WAY TO START

A consulting project is a typical starting point for many of our customers. If you have a problem involving particles and are not sure if or how Aspherix® can help, this is the way to go. With our experience we can provide answers to your questions and introduce you to our software. We always like to stretch the borders of what is possible to simulate and love a good challenge.

WHY OUR CONSULTING SERVICES STAND OUT

BROAD EXPERTISE

Our team is composed of senior engineers and scientists from Mechanical & Electrical Engineering, Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science and has conducted more hundreds of projects for blue chip companies in all industries.

LEADING SOFTWARE

We are the core developers of the ASPHERIX® and CFDEM®coupling. We know how to transform science and engineering expertise into CAE software. We constantly improve the models within our simulation software which is designed to be highly customizable to reflect the variety of challenges we see in our consultancy projects.

TIME TO MARKET

We are used to working in a swift and agile way. The Open Source license of our software in combination with our expertise allows us to provide you an unprecedented time to market.

SELECTED PROJECTS

We picked a few of our consulting cases to demonstrate how our software can support different applications

SIMULATION OF A BLAST FURNACE

CFD-DEM simulations can help to improve blast furnace operational parameters such as the impact of charging recipe on the uniformity of solid fraction, the impact of hot blast mass-flow rate and velocity on race way size and shape.

SIMULATION OF A BALL MILL

Ball mills are widely used in the minerals and mining industry. CFD-DEM simulations can help to improve their performance and reduce down-time and maintenance.

OPTIMIZATION OF A TRANSFER CHUTE

The simulation above shows the dust emission in a transfer chute system, in both a simple and an improved geometry. While in the simple geometry, dust can escape the transfer chute and can pose a possible health and explosion hazard, the dust is kept within the transfer chute in the improved geometry.

SIMULATION OF A CIRCULATING FLUIDIZED BED

Circulating fluidized beds are widely used in chemical, process and metallurgical industry. The simulation of a fluidized bed can help to improve heat and mass transfer reaction rate, optimize residence time and product uniformity.
