The Success of a CFD analysis project is dependent on meshing approach and mesh quality. The Tridiagonal team uses leading tools such as Gambit, Tgrid, HyperMesh and the ANSYS meshing platform, so that “physics-relevant” meshes can be generated. We are also capable of developing automated Meshing approaches for productivity enhancement.
Many of the Tridiagonal team members have vast experience with writing in-house CFD codes as well as working with commercial codes. We have significant experience not only working on flow modeling but also on numerical methods. We use industry leading CFD solvers such as FLUENT, CFX, and OpenFOAM.
The Tridiagonal team has developed solution approaches for several advanced physics applications such as nucleate and bulk boiling, magneto hydrodynamics, solidification and melting, effect of electric charge on particulate transport and a variety of multiphase flow problems. We design best practices to derive the maximum output from the leading CFD codes while solving complicated flow problems. These results in a significant reduction of time needed to develop solution strategies.
Our unique services offered as validation studies, are usually part of larger projects which involve coming up with technical approach, best practice development, and validation of computational results with available experimental data. We have access to facilities for conducting cold flow experiments where appropriate experimental data can be obtained for specific validation objectives.
Our typical assignments span from geometry clean up and meshing to publication of high quality internal best practices for CFD teams to adopt. We also provide custom training and support solutions depending on customer requirements.
