FREMONT, CA: Technavio unveils latest report on cloud computational fluid, and foresees the market to grow at CAGR of 11 percent during the forecast period between 2016 and 2020. The report, “Global Cloud Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Market 2016-2020” provides a detailed segmentation of the emerging market change and the revenues generated.
CFD is widely used for thermal modelling in data centers to highlight the hot spots with lesser air flow and analyze the benefits of cooling. The areas with excessive cooling can also be easily identified by CFD.
CFD in automotive industry
The CFD plays an important in identifying the internal and external such as enhanced night vision with pedestrian detection and automatic high beam control. The advancement in fuel injection technology and fuel-efficient engine design has expanded the use of CFD in the automobile sector.
The computing and complex code-solving programs have brought more precision to the efficiency of the engine. CFD can be used in all components that with fluid such as lubricants, fuel, water, coolants, and exhaust gases. The interior climate systems can also be optimized including windshield, defogging, and defrosting.
CFD in aerospace and defence industry
CFD has found wide applications in aircraft manufacturing and R&D. They are also used to design external aerodynamics, fuel systems, cockpit and cabin ventilation, engine core compartments, missiles, and submarines.
The advancement of fast and efficient computers in recent years has replaced the traditional methods of testing the products. The methods such as tunnel testing and flight testing are replaced by numerical simulation methods based on the Navier-Stokes equation. The equation and the numerical simulations collectively used in building CFD solutions.
“CFD is a tool that analyzes the flow, turbulence, pressure distribution, and interaction of liquids and gases with various structures. It is the science of predicting fluid flow, mass transfer, chemical reactions, and related phenomena. The CFD technology uses computers, computational methods, data of fluid viscosity, and fluid flow rates to simulate the flow of fluids,” says Amrita Choudhury, a lead analyst at Technavio for enterprise application research.
