Flow optimization based on the visualisation of flow by means of an optically active liquid

Current aggregates and components in the field of flow
technology (tubes, pumps, heat exchangers, turbines, etc.)
feature a comparatively low effectiveness due to heavy
energy losses caused by overcoming hydraulic resistance.

This operation of these aggregates or their components is
often accompanied by noise, vibration, clogging and
wearing of the flow component.

The mentioned deficiencies result from the incomplete
(often even primitive) geometry of flow channels, that are
frequently designed based on simplicity considerations of
manufacturing technology.

These drawbacks can be eliminated by applying Flow
optimization intended for optimizing components and
machines of flow technology. This technology is based on
the visualisation of flow by means of an optically active
liquid which is penetrated by radiation with special light.

The work of flow optimization generally runs through the following stages:

1. Recording data of the drawing with a modern
   CAD-Programm

2. Create a 3-D-model

3. Analysis of flow conditions

4. Design and drawing of optimal spatial structure

5. Analysis of optimized flow conditions

6. Construction of models of the original and the optimum

7. Test the models on an aerodynamic test stand
