When designing new products or components, it is crucial to get insight on product performance early in the design phase. It is also crucial to minimize time-consuming and expensive prototype testing. At the same time, best-in-class products often require radically new design ideas. At SGL Carbon, we help our customers to create the best products in the market by offering full-service digital computer aided engineering (CAE) solutions that provide the crucial competitive advantage.
Test radically new designs
At SGL Carbon, we believe that smart solutions will require radically new designs in combination with radically new materials and manufacturing technologies. To master our customers challenges, our modeling and simulation experts have been using finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for over a decade.
We have a track-record of creating positive business cases for our customers. Read the success stories from our customers to get an impression on our unparalleled multiphysics know how.
Competitive advantage starts with higher production efficiency. In this success story, we redesigned a charging system with a carbon fiber reinforced carbon (CFRC) material to increase the throughput and eliminate creep.
Using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) we carried out a digital proof-of-concept for a new heat exchanger design. The new technology combines the benefits of conventional scraped surface heat exchangers and wire coil inserts commonly used to enhance turbulent flow conditions in heat exchanger tubes.
