New CFD server at Fives Pillard
Fives Pillard has significantly increased its computing power by investing in a new server with 120 computing cores, (compared to 30 previously). This server is now operational and the results obtained have given complete satisfaction, reducing CFD calculation times by a factor of 4. This new computing power has allowed us to increase our responsiveness and to meet the demands of our customers and subsidiaries
Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has proven itself to be an increasingly important tool. It is used both to develop new equipment, (requested by our clients at the contract stage in order to secure their installation) and for solving any problems which may be encountered during commissioning.
With this new server, Fives Pillard and its subsidiaries has already planned to work on CFD engineering involving more complex phenomena or kinetics, in HRSG, petrochemicals, and thermal power plant applications, with a better accuracy met thanks to an increased meshing number.
