Heat Transfer Simulations
Most machines, such as high-heat turbines (gas and steam), boilers, and combustors for example, require strict control of thermal stresses and expansions. Due to the very particular nature of heat transfer, establishing this control can be both tedious and time consuming. SoftInWay offers the tools and consulting engineers that can calculate parameters of heat transfer between components and outer and inner gas flow. They can also determine temperatures, relative thermal displacements, and thermal stresses.
Our software provides a wide spectrum of heat-related calculations, including startup and shutdown cycles, thermal warp effects on static elements (casings and exhaust hoods), on shafts, heat transfer analysis, warp and displacement of ceilings. We can also help you calculate predictions of a machine’s behavior on transient operational modes. If necessary, structural verification can be performed immediately.
Heat-resistant coatings and forced cooling can also be assigned and tested with the understanding that heat calculations are the fundamental base for development of active clearance control.
