I.F.I. use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to study and analyze complex flow processes where calculations and more simple simulation tools fail. Typical problems which we encounter in our daily work are smoke ventilation in buildings or in traffic infrastructure, pollutant dispersion e.g. in underground parkings or outdoor areas, indoor flow processes considering local thermal boundary conditions, cold airflow in outdoor environments, and instability analysis of single-axis PV tracking systems. Depending on the problem, stationary or transient simulations are conducted using either FDS or OpenFoam.
