State-of-the-art CFD Modeling Provides the Capability to Solve Complex Engineering Problems

In engineering, it is desirable to use the most direct method in order to solve any given problem. Analytic solutions, tabulated data, and/or codified procedures can offer expedient resolutions. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling is applied when the problem is complex enough to the point there is no available information on past testing. CFD is used to address problems with non-uniformly coupled transport phenomena, involved geometric and boundary features, and dynamic and distributed sources. JENSEN HUGHES engineers aggregate decades of modeling experience to provide clients with CFD modeling services when other analysis methods do not suffice.

Atriums and Other Large Volume Spaces

Picture_Section 1 - Services_Risk and Hazards Analysis_Modeling_FDS-CROPPEDComputer modeling of smoke movement and control in atria and other large open spaces such as stadiums, airport terminals, and malls, has the potential to refine system requirements to reduce cost and complexity. At JENSEN HUGHES we typically make use of FDS to evaluate the problem.



Picture_Section 2 - Services_Risk and Hazards Analysis_Modeling_FDS-CROPPEDMaintaining compliance with environmental regulations means ensuring effluents from a facility do not impact the local community. Failure of compressed hydrocarbon (LNG, CNG) storage can result in the formation of plumes of explosive gasses. CFD can be used in both these cases to model dispersion and evaluate safety and compliance such as ensuring emissions from a covered roadway do not exceed federally mandated levels.

Severe Accidents

Picture_Section 3 - Services_Risk and Hazards Analysis_Modeling_FDSVery severe accidents often involve conditions well beyond those tested in laboratories. For the worst events, conditions may be well beyond those in engineering experience. JENSEN HUGHES has provided modeling expertise in support of accidents as severe as the unintended ignition of a space launch vehicle.

Indoor Air QualityPicture_Section 4 - Services_Risk and Hazards Analysis_Modeling_FDS-CROPPED

Building standards provide excellent guidance on the safe removal of toxicants from facilities such as parking garages. However, where occupants and pollution sources are intimate, CFD modeling can ensure that every place in a building remains safe with adequate air quality.
