Computational Fluid Dynamics and Discrete Element Modelling

The company utilises Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Discrete Element Modelling (DEM) to supplement design and development of a variety of systems. The numerical solution and algebraical equation methods Greenbank use have been developed in-house and correlated with both experimental data, as proven on our own test rig, and real-time data provided by our customers.

CFD and DEM analysis provides great potential for saving time in the design process and therefore proves more cost-effective and quicker when compared to conventional testing for data acquisition.

Greenbank is able to undertake modelling of fluid flow problems, particle tracking, particle control, chemical reactions, temperature and combustion processes.

By validating computer modelling against existing data, Greenbank can identify the optimum positions for devices in pipe networks as well as identifying areas of high pressure drop or poor air movement as successfully demonstrated with our VARB family of products.
