The construction and equipment of a pumping station is another project where the analysis from the point of view of Fluid Mechanics is significant.
- Client: VS_INGENOVA
- Sector: Hydraulic Engineering
- Date: 2015
- Other data: CFD Simulation is being significantly introduced in Civil Engineering
The simulation allows you to previous checking and problems detection before operational functioning.
A scale model like the one shown in the image is useful to verify the solutions provided.
In the CFD numerical simulation of the pumps operation, the formation of vortices that reduce the efficiency of the process is detected.
The solution in this case was to intervene in the geometry of the chamber where the pumps are located.
