PDM Analysis Ltd and Simerics Inc.
Announce Integration of
SCORGTM and Simerics-PD®
for the Analysis of Positive Displacement Compressors
August 15, 2015 – PDM Analysis Ltd , the leader in providing fast and reliable analysis and design solutions for screw compressors, and Simerics, Inc., creators of 3D CFD simulation tools for high fidelity virtual testing of complex fluid systems, announced today a direct integration between SCORG and Simerics-PD.
SCORGTM, developed by PDM Analysis, is specialized software for the design and analysis of screw compressors, pumps and motors. It offers unique capability to evaluate the performance and operation of these machines by use of Computational Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamic Multi Chamber Model. It is designed to minimize efforts and maximise efficiency of the design process by enabling geometry analysis, preliminary thermodynamic evaluation and grid generation of the large number of positive displacement rotary machines with multiple rotor arrangements including:
- Screw compressors with two or more rotors
- Single phase and multiphase screw pumps with two and more rotors
- Single phase and multiphase screw motors with two or more rotors
- Roots Blowers
- Hook and Claw Compressors, pumps and motors
- Gear pumps and G-pumps
- Progressive Cavity pumps
- Rotary screw extruders
Simerics-PD, developed by Simerics is built on the strength of the proprietary numerical algorithms and physical models developed by Simerics with additional templates and capabilities developed specifically for positive displacement (PD) Compressors. Simerics-PD provides unsurpassed speed, accuracy, and numerical strength in simulating the heat transfer and fluid dynamics for a range of Compressors. For liquid systems, there is a Cavitation Module to account accurately for the effect of vapor, free gas and liquid compressibility.
Webinar: A webinar will be conducted on Wednesday, Sept 9, at 12:00AM eastern time US (1700 hrs UK) to showcase this integration as well as SCORG and Simerics-PD functionality. To pre-register for this webinar, click on “SCORG-Simerics PD Webinar” or contact Chris Langford directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration information will be sent to your e-mail address. The integration will also be available for demonstration at the PDM Analysis Ltd, Simerics Inc. and 80/20 Engineering booth at the 9th International Conference on Compressors and their Systems, organized by City University London on September 7th -9th, 2015 at The Mermaid Conference Centre, Puddle Dock, Blackfriars, EC4V 3DB, London, United Kingdom.
