Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

Coupling of various physicochemical models by CFD

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a computer-based technology for numerically simulating and predicting phenomena by solving equations that model fluid flow and heat transfer.

By coupling various physicochemical models of, for example, reaction rate, reaction degradation, and heat transfer obtained experimentally with governing equations, we have developed our own thermo-fluid simulation technology for simulating actual conditions that are not possible using general-purpose software. We have also introduced state-of-the-art technologies, such as automated-analysis technology and optimization technology, which contribute to the development of our other technologies such as Direct MCH® and bioethanol.

We will continue to acquire the latest technologies and develop technologies that can contribute to strengthening the competitiveness of our entire supply chain and create a low-carbon society.
