KeelWit’s methodology of optimization using optimization algorithms combined with ANSYS’ CFD module and solver has been selected to be included in the worldwide magazine version that ANSYS delivers to all customers showing the best uses of their software package.
The article yields a summary of the methodology used in optimizing the shape of the inlet ducts of the heaters of power plants, achieving improvements of targets chosen by 24%.
The methodology and proprietary algorithms are part of Isaac Prada’s PhD for which he obtained a “Cum Laude” qualification.
ANSYS has decided to show these results as they show a wide range of different applications where this engineering procedure can be applied. This same methodology has also been applied to the improvement of wind tunnels’ shapes, where results obtained have given a pressure drop reduction of up to 60%.
