Our mission is to help our clients in solving their technical/environmental problems related to fluid flow and heat/mass transfer using advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models and the general-purpose CFD software, PHOENICS, as a framework for modeling. We have been providing CFD software sales and training/consulting services in Canada, USA and other countries since 1998.
Various advanced customized and validated CFD models are available for industrial and research applications. An application of novel fully physical transient 3D CFD model of wildland fire initiation and spread is illustrated below in a validation case of experimental surface fire. The model details are available in presentation and paper.
A novel physics-based multiphase CFD model of wildland fire initiation and spread, WILDFIRE, was developed, validated and presented on April 12, 2016 at the 5th International Fire Behavior and Fuels Conference in Portland, Oregon, USA. It accounts for drying, pyrolysis, char combustion, turbulent gaseous combustion, interphase exchange of mass, momentum and energy and radiative heat transfer. The model details are available in presentation and paper.
A customized CFD model of supercritical fluid flow and heat transfer was further developed, validated and presented on September 4, 2015 at the 16th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermal Hydraulics (NURETH-16) in Chicago, USA. The details are available in paper.
The new PHOENICS 2015 software features and some applications are described in the newsletter.
The advanced CFD models have been developed and validated for environmental and risk and safety assessments (flammable gas release and dispersion, atmospheric pollutant dispersion and two-phase plumes from cooling towers and other industrial installations). The models are briefly described in paper. The cost-effective training/consulting and ready-to-use model templates are provided.
A customized CFD model of supercritical fluid flow and heat transfer was developed, validated and presented on May 18, 2015 at the 23 International Conference on Nuclear Engineering (ICONE23) in Chiba, Japan. CFD predictions agreed well with experimental data. The details are available in paper.
The latest PHOENICS software news is available in the newsletter.
The new PHOENICS 2014 software features and applications are described in the newsletter.
In April and May 2015, two special 4-day training/consulting sessions are arranged by our top CFD consultants in Orlando and Toronto. The format of sessions includes 2-day standard PHOENICS 2014 CFD software training, 1-day customized one-on-one training in a selected application area, and 1-day consulting clinic focused on finding sensible CFD solutions of problems/issues formulated by attendees. The slogan is “Show us a problem and take home its solution”. A free 2-month PHOENICS license enhanced by series of working templates will be offered to each attendee.

A novel multi-group two-phase CFD model of drift drop plume was developed, validated and presented on July 10, 2014 at the 22 International Conference on Nuclear Engineering (ICONE22) in Prague, Czech Republic. CFD predictions agreed well with exerimental data. The details are available in paper.
Basic and advanced customized PHOENICS CFD software training courses are provided by ACFDA in Toronto, Canada, Orlando, USA, on client sites and over the internet. Free 1-month software licenses are offered to course attendees. Send your inquiries to email@example.com
A CFD model for air quality assessment was presented on March 21, 2013 at the Air & Waste Management Association's Specialty Conference Guideline on Air Quality Models: The Path Forward. PHOENICS CFD predictions agreed well with CALPUFF modeling results. The details are available in paper.
PHOENICS CFD software celebrated 30 in October. Its history has been described in Birthday newsletter.
Advanced Gas-Liquid Flow (GLFLOW) CFD module has been developed, tested and validated. The module is ready for applications requiring complex gas-liquid flow analyses.
Gas release and dispersion (GRAD) CFD module has been developed and validated. The module is ready for environmental and safety applications.
