3D Conjugate Heat Transfer Analysis of the Next Generation: Inner Reflector Plug for the Spallation Neutron Sourc
The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) is an accelerator-based neutron source at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The SNS facility provides the most intense pulsed neutron beams in the world for scientific research and industrial development. The liquid mercury target, moderators and beryllium reflectors are contained inside the inner reflector plug. The main objectives of the redesign of the inner reflector plug are simplifying its disposal and increasing its neutronic performance. The inner reflector plug is actively cooled by flowing heavy and light water through a maze of channels...
Faced with increased water-cuts from maturing wells and a combination of environmental legislation and operational demands, Oil and Gas operators are being forced to review their separation process. Not only must separation trains now handle larger throughput of well fluids (due to increased water content), but the water that they deliver for disposal or reinjection must also be cleaner than ever before.

Tetra Pak Cheese and Powder Systems (CPS) uses STAR-CCM+ to optimize evaporator and spray dryer systems, reducing costs, increasing efficiency, and eliminating waste in their manufacturing process. They created their plant virtually and removed many of the problems digitally before they ever put one piece of equipment in place, saving themselves time and start up costs as well.

CD-adapco offers specific simulation ools and procedures in STAR-CCM+ to fit the needs and requiremenst of the marine and offshore industry. Shown here is a wind and wave loading analysis on an offshore platform.
CD-adapco has developed specific models for propulsion simulations, such as the virtual blade model and the possibility of coupling a STAR-CCM+ simulation to external codes providing propulsion body forces. Depicted here is a RANS simulation of complex marine flow problems. Image courtesy of FORCE TECHNOLOGY.
