One of the things we pride ourselves in is our use and understanding of three dimensional computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modeling.

It comes from our long-standing history in understanding flow problems, first and foremost. When our flow expertise is coupled with new and constantly improving technology, our clients are the ones that benefit. Using CFD modeling effectively means we can often help clients solve problems in new and sometimes more efficient ways.

To give you a quick taste of what 3D CFD modeling can achieve, we broke this newsletter into four flavors: process improvements, engineering design, educational, and one of our personal favorites, fun with CFD. 

Bon appetit!

The Low Down on Low Loads and CFD Modeling

The use of CFD Modeling is helping power generators address unintended operational issues for low-loaded systems. This case study demonstrates how a wet flue gas desulfurization (WFGD) system was optimized for better efficiency and reliability, aided by CFD results. Read more

A Mini-Mississippi River May Help Save Louisiana’s Vanishing Coast

A great article in The New York Times on a remarkable project by the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of the State of Louisiana being designed by AECOM. The physical models Alden has created are part of the efforts to build land by reconnecting the Mississippi River to the wetlands in Louisiana.
