The Behsazan Jonoob can help you identify problems in your operation regarding Valves, Actuators and Wellhead and form a solution. We often are asked to calculate whether a valve is up to its task. , One way we perform this is through computational fluid dynamics.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (C.F.D.)
Understanding the fluid dynamics and thermo-control is essential to properly design products for which these phenomena play a roll of importance. The term C.F.D. covers calculations in the field of fluid dynamics, which are based on numerical methods. Often the so called finite element method is adopted. This means that volume, where the studied flow occurs, is modeled by dividing it into elements in order to determine its behavior. The flow may take place either through an enclosed envelope or within a body. Examples of results are:

Pressure distribution
Velocity distribution
Temperature distribution
Graphical display of stream lines
By means of this software, both two- and three-dimensional models can be studied.
The possibilities stretch out to:

Laminar or turbulent circulation
Supersonic, Transonic and Subsonic (compressible) flow
Stationary or non stationary flow
Heat transfer through conduction, convection, or combined
These results can be used in a finite element analysis to compute thermal stresses in combination with other mechanical loads.
