Typically, we help companies with our expertise and time to do R&D for them.
Also, we help avoid failures by detecting their risks in simulation.
We focus on fluid flow, heat transfer and combustion phenomena. We have worked for companies in Switzerland, Norway, Germany, UK, US and Poland. By working with us, you exploit our experience and know-how.
Research or development work requires time and continuous improvements. Your engineers often have other project deadlines. Let us take R&D into our hands.
It is very costly to correct faults if they appear in prototypes or series production. CFD simulation helps predict faults before they arise.
Prototypes with faults cost a lot of money and even more time! Good simulations reduce the number of prototypes needed.
Thermal and cooling simulations for electromobility are our competence focus at QuickerSim. We have helped optimise battery cooling for electric motorcycles, aircraft, buses, forklifts and cars. Also, we have helped design cooling systems that allow for rapid charging. Finally, we have worked on HVAC simulations of electric buses. To learn more about battery cooling simulations, go to our Q-Bat website.
We have experience in modelling combustion in industrial furnaces. It includes modelling coal or biomass combustion on the grate. Also, we have simulated homogeneous combustion of the syngas and investigated whether the syngas particles travel for more than 2 seconds in temperatures exceeding 850 degrees C. Finally, we have also worked on the design of small gas turbines for micro-power applications.
Dust or oil removal, particle transport or cyclone separator simulations are standard examples of cases that we simulate for our customers.
Moreover, HVAC simulations involved:
- thermal comfort of people in the offices,
- air cleanness in hospital surgery rooms,
- humidity distribution in museum halls.
These are the most common applications of HVAC CFD analyses for civil engineering.
We have simulated multiple things for biomedical applications. To name just a few:
- noise generation in turbulent flows for Swiss manufacturer of hearing devices,
- blood flow in the bionic pancreas and shear forces during 3-D bioprinting of tissue cells,
- microscopic natural convection for biological research applications.
For Valeo, we have created custom simulation models for thermal shock calculations of engine radiators. We have helped Hendrickson in the US calculate compressed air dynamics in the pneumatic suspension system of trucks and buses. Headlamp and windshield defogging simulations are yet another application to name.
Cold flow modelling (simulation of flows that do not include heat transfer modelling) is one of the most standard applications of CFD. It allows for calculating pressure drops. Also, if the flow carries dust or other solid particles, it allows for the prediction of areas of excessive wear.
What you can expect
When cooperating with our customers, we see what they usually appreciate the most.
During the first call, we want to understand your problem. Usually, a week later, we show you how we suggest solving your challenge and give you the quote.
We always try to focus on your technical and business objective. Solving a technical problem to help you achieve your goals usually means more than just delivering service according to specification.
QuickerSim was started by two PhDs in CFD. We like working on challenging projects and research. But we always focus on the business outcomes for you.
We do not know the answers to all questions. But we know how to diagnose problems and verify results. We always give you clear feedback on current simulation results and report our suggestions.
Even in short simulation projects, we always have weekly status meetings with you. We show the current results, and you track our progress.
At the end of the project, you get a pdf report. It describes the simulation model, the assumptions, and results and most importantly: gives conclusions and recommendations.
See what we have done for our customers in the US, UK, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden and Poland.
This is already another joint project. The staff and support are second to none. They are proficient, accessible, and patient. They saved me hassle and stress because they knew how to solve my issue.
If you're serious about simulations, you need QuickerSim. I definitely can say that is excellent cooperation. Keep up the great work
What do I need to do the simulation?
To do the simulation, we need a geometry of the simulated domain. We prefer .step format or Solid Works file. If you haven’t got a 3D geometry, we can create it from your technical drawing.
How long will it take?
From the moment we start working on the project, we need around one or two weeks to get the final results. For the projects with a larger number of cases, we need 2-4 weeks.
How much does it cost?
The price of the simulation depends on the time we have to spend on it. Every project is quoted individually. For detailed information about “What affects the cost of simulation” please read this article. Usually, simulations cost 2 500 – 6 000 EUR.
How do you know that the result is correct?
The results we receive from the simulations are compared to the analytical calculations. Thanks to that, we know if it is in the correct range of values. Additionally, our engineers have strong experience in CFD simulations, and they can judge if the results are correct or not. Some of the projects were validated with physical measurements on the devices or in a wind tunnel. We know that simulations allow receiving values with an error of around 5% to the reality.
Airflow with dust particles may lead to blockage of the valves or inlet manifolds. We have carried out such an analysis for our British customer to help solve the problem.
The HVAC system of an OR in a hospital needs to provide thermal comfort and clean, fresh air. We have helped check the HVAC design for one of the hospitals in the EU.
QuickerSim has calculated shear forces on pancreatic cells during the 3-D bioprinting process. Flow through the printer's needle has been computed and wall shears calculated.
