About Thermal Engineering

Proper heat management of heat within a device, component or process, or at large scale in a building or vehicle, can make the difference between successful implementation, or expensive redesign and adjustment. The (virtual) mapping of heat flows, temperature distributions and the influence of temperature differences or changes on parts at an early stage in the design process can avoid many problems later on. In a multiphysics perspective, thermal analysis can be coupled to other physics such as Electromagnetics for heat development in coils, Structural Mechanics for thermal stresses and fluid flow applications to observe heat transport by (natural) convection or buoyancy effects.
Demcon multiphysics has, amongst others, experience with:

  • Heat exchangers
  • HVAC (Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning)
  • Thermomechanical stress analysis
  • Radiation effects
  • Convective and conductive thermal analysis
  • Cooling of electronics
  • Conjugate heat transfer
  • Combustion processes
  • Evaporation and condensation
  • Fluid-structure interactions (FSI)
  • Thermo-acoustics

In many industrial processes heat exchangers represent a significant investment. At the same time the proper and efficient transfer of heat can influence a process very positively. Both are reasons to, when applying heat exchangers or other heat transfer mechanisms, critically evaluate the design and geometry. Demcon multiphysics can play a leading role in designing, improving and optimizing heat transfer systems and heat exchangers.

blankAbout Demcon multiphysics

Demcon multiphysics is an engineering agency with high-end expertise in the area of heat transfer, fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, acoustics and electromagnetism. We support clients from a wide variety of market sectors such as the process industry, semiconductor industry, oil & gas, maritime sector, heat exchanger applications and medical applications. With deep physical insights we aim to help you achieve your goals in research, development and engineering programs.

We combine fundamental physical knowledge from an analytical approach with Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) simulations tools from ANSYS, MATHWORKS, and COMSOL to setup, execute, analyze and evaluate numerical simulations.
The use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Finite Element Analysis (FEM / FEA), Lumped Element Modelling (LEM) and Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) enables us to make a virtual prototype of your design. With these techniques we can simulate the fluid and gas flows, energy exchange, heat and mass transfer, stresses, strains and vibrations in structures and the interaction of electromagnetic fields with other physical aspects like heat generation. This way of simulation-driven development increases the developments efficiency and reduces the
product development time. Our services can therefore fully support you
in the designing phase, from idea up to prototype.
