Our flow test bench allows precise and cost-efficient CFD simulation
To reduce costs and to shorten product development time we developed an own special flow test bench for CFD simulation.
Self-developed measurement technology
Validated results form the basis of reliable high-tech products. At the beginning of 2017, bionic surface technologies put into operation a new flow test bench to precisely measure the influence of different surface structures on flow conditions.
We widen your CFD simulation spectrum
In this way, friction coefficients can be measured for different surfaces with different Reynolds numbers. This allows the design of bionic structures to be validated by experimental methods. As a result, the application areas of bionic surfaces can be made even more various.
Flow bench testing at expert level
This self-developed Riblet test bench is a professional and unique tool to measure the microstructured surfaces and their effect to support CFD simulation. Other technical surfaces such as sand roughness or electropolished surfaces etc. can also be investigated for their fluid dynamic properties. The investigation of surface energy and contact angle (hydrophilic or hydrophobic) and its effect on fluid friction is also possible.
The key to new bionic applications
By using our flow test stand, existing and new bionic surfaces can be analyzed and tested and optimized with regard to their flow resistance. This forms the basis for new developments in industrial and scientific research projects.
Flow test bench function
The flow resistance of surfaces is determined. For this, force, speed and temperature are measured at the test rig.
Fluid dynamics principle
The fluid is located between two surfaces with a defined distance. One of the two compartments is driven and the movement creates a shear in the fluid.
Precise flow measurement
The automatic recording, documentation and processing of all measured values guarantee precise and reproducible results.
