Heat Transfer Simulations
Most types of machines, such as high-heated turbines (gas and steam), boilers, combustors and etc., require a strict control of thermal stresses and expansions.
Our tools allow for calculation of the parameters of heat transfer between the components and with the outer gas flow as well as to determine temperatures, relative thermal displacements and thermal stresses.
We provide a wide spectrum of heat-related calculations, including startup and shutdown cycles, thermal warp effects on static elements (casings, exhaust hoods), on shafts, warp and displacement of sealings.
Another important application is the prediction of machine’s behavior on transient operational modes. If necessary, structural verification can be performed immediately.
In case of need heat-resistant coatings and forced cooling can be assigned and tested. Also, heat calculations are the fundamental base for development of active clearance control.
