White Paper - Multidisciplinary Simulation and Design Exploration in the Chemical and Process Industry
The chemical and process industry manufactures functional products from raw materials. These materials form the basis of new functionalities in a host of other industries: from touch sensitive glass for smartphones, corrosion inhibitors for oil pipelines, paints and foams for automobiles to carbon fibers for aircraft.

In the 1980s, new numerical analysis methods were developed, led by the aerospace and automobile industries. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) allowed engineers to test their “raw” designs and verify them without building physical prototypes. Since then, significant research has advanced the micro-scale models and enabled a deeper and wider application, especially in combustion reactions. Developments for many other processes such as crystallization or lyophilization, are also ongoing in academic circles. This rapid pace of research has been reflected in Siemens’ rapid development of Simcenter STAR-CCM+ software.

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ makes simulation accessible to process engineers with limited simulation experience but strong process knowledge. Combined with Simcenter STAR-CCM+ Mixing Vessel Workflow, a dedicated tool for mixing, Simcenter STAR-CCM+ offers a virtual process design and development platform. There is no doubt about the value it will bring to the business:
  • Freedom to test novel concepts to meet process needs
  • Ideas and solutions can be tested under actual operating conditions and scales
  • Scale-up of processes from preliminary design and pilot scale knowledge

The insight gained from simulation is now accessible to a much wider set of engineers. This flood of knowledge and skills will make the industry more cost efficient, less polluting and ultimately more innovative.
