Cryogenics and Advanced Fluid Flow Design

Dewars, Cryostats, and Tank Pressurization

The general thermodynamic and hydrodynamic solutions used within CRTech's tool suite are capable of meeting the growing demand for cryogenic fluid system design. Many organizations have previously used in-house tools specialized for such applications. However, these organizations typically do not have the resources nor infrastructure to maintain these codes when cognizant engineers are lost, nor to modify and validate them for new vehicles or applications, nor to train new engineers on their use. The use of a single general-purpose thermal/fluid modeling tool to encompass all such analyses offers not only solutions to these problems, but also enables integrated analyses and the ability to communicate with vendors and customers.

An extensive set of generalized thermal/fluid modeling tools exist within SINDA/FLUINT, Thermal Desktop®, and FloCAD® that satisfy the specialized needs of cryogenic fluid system design and analysis. These tools uniquely provide integrated modeling of an entire cryogenic tank system including pressurization, vaporization, and liquefication. They can also link intimately with thermal models of the structure and environment. Access is provided to SINDA/FLUINT's high-level design synthesis, statistical design, and model correlation modules in addition to the geometric and nongeometric user interfaces, training, and user support.

Cryogenic design applications include:

FloCAD online training

Class times: May 2 & 4 from 10am to 2pm MT

Cost: $425

This online class will provide an introduction to fluid modeling components within FloCAD. The class will be held over a 2-day period, with daily sessions running approximately 4 hours each. The class uses a mixture of lecture, demonstrations, and self-paced tutorials to allow attendees to practice building fluid system models and interpreting results. The presentations will comprise 2 - 3 hours of each session, and the instructor will be available during the remainder of the time for questions during tutorials. Attendees must have basic working knowledge of SINDA and Thermal Desktop as these topics will not be covered but their usage is required for FloCAD.

Using Sinaps? It is not too soon to get started with TD/FloCAD!

This webinar describes the process for converting from Sinaps to Thermal Desktop (TD) and FloCAD. This process includes using an exporter which works with Version 6.0 of the CRTech tool suite (expected to be released in May of 2017).

Come learn about the basics of TD/FloCAD, including many compelling features not available in Sinaps. The webinar will also cover how to manage the transition period, during which you may be using both programs simultaneously. This is also a chance to ask questions.
