Picking Up Steam – Article – Ansys Advantage – V11 I2

The design of many products is complicated by conflicting design objectives. For example, minimizing pressure drop for heat recovery steam generator inlets also requires maintaining uniform flow velocity at the entry to the boiler. KeelWit engineers developed an optimization algorithm that was applied by leveraging ANSYS ACT to manage trade-offs and reduce pressure drop by up to 25 percent across two families of boilers. This substantially improved performance.
