Boxer software has launched its latest simulation software Boxergeom for through-life performance for prediction of components from erosion, particulate build-up and potential blockage, allowing users to optimise designs or model damage.
The software looks to predict in-service component performance, lifespan, and determine optimal operating conditions, all in an entirely topology-independent and unconstrained manner, helping judge potential damage to impeller designs or valves.
This creates a digital twin of a part, with analysis helping to understand the performance of a component or system during service and not simply in its pristine, manufactured condition.
Boxergeom can alter a geometric surface in response to an arbitrary surface scalar value such as temperature, pressure, x-location, particle impact frequency and erosion rate.
The surface can be made to move outward (add material) or inward (remove material) to model particle build-up, icing, erosion or burn-out in response to the local scalar value.
“With Boxergeom, we now can allow users to get a better idea of what is happening to components during service and how this affects their performance,” said Cambridge Flow Solutions CEO Bill Dawes.
