Due to additional demand CPFD announces an additional web-based Barracuda Virtual Reactor New User Training class from December 6-10, 2021. This online training course is designed to get you up-to-speed quickly using Virtual Reactor and our bundled post-processor, Tecplot for Barracuda.
Study on effect of gas distributor in fluidized bed reactors by hydrodynamics-reaction-coupled simulations
In order to analyze the effects that maldistribution of gas can have on FCC regenerator performance, researchers from China University of Petroleum conducted simulations using Barracuda Virtual Reactor.
This joint presentation by Reynaldo Gomez and Andy Lin provides an overview of GPU computing and introduces the NVIDIA DGX A100 hardware technology.
Randomness in Barracuda Simulations in Barracuda Virtual Reactor often necessitate modelling the interactions of millions, if not billions, of particles while simultaneously accounting for fluid dynamics, chemistry, and thermal calculations.…
CPFD to present on the topic of “CFD Modeling and Liquid Vaporization” at AIChE’s Annual Meeting on November 8, 2021 in Boston.
The addition of multi-GPU capabilities to Barracuda Virtual Reactor opens up a range of new possibilities for simulations by enabling far larger systems to run within a reasonable timeframe. However,…
MP-PIC simulation of circulating fluidized beds using an EMMS based drag model for Geldart B particles
In this study the multiphase particle-in-cell (MP-PIC) method is used for the simulation of two pilot-scale circulating fluidized beds (CFBs) with quartz sand belonging to Geldart’s group B as bed material
