Computational Fluid Dynamics


CFD Analysis

Computational Fluid Dynamics(CFD) is the simulation of fluid flow (liquid and gas) in open and closed systems to determine the properties of the flow and design the systems to meet the requirements of the application. GLSV has the capabilities and know how to accomplish complex problems ranging from exhaust systems to full vehicle under hood cooling analysis.

Intake/Exhaust Flow Analysis

GLSV analyzes intake and exhaust systems for custom design applications to meet our customers needs. GLSV designs high performance systems which meet the engine back pressure requirements while significantly reducing the overall intake and exhaust noise.

  • Muffler Design
  • Exhaust Temperature
  • Engine Backpressure
  • Noise Attenuation
  • Thermal Expansion
  • Thermal Stress Analysis

HVAC Systems

GLSV analyzes the flow in HVAC systems using CFD in order to reduce the noise in the system and maintain the heating and cooling performance.

  • Overall pressure distribution
  • Velocity distribution
  • Noise Reduction
  • Sound Absorption Materials
  • Flow Improvements

Full Vehicle Under Hood Cooling

GLSV performs full vehicle under hood cooling analysis to determine installed performance of the engine cooling pack including the radiator and fan. GLSV provides added value in reducing overall noise levels while maintaining cooling performance.

  • Virtual Wind Tunnel
  • Cooling Fan Performance
  • Radiator Heat Rejection
  • Overall Vehicle Noise Reduction
  • Capable of efficiently analyzing large assemblies
