Modelling and Simulation

Modelling and Simulation

Industry-oriented Research

The group has core competence and research activities in process and product optimization, with focus on modelling and optimization of

  • Metallurgical processes
  • Industrial production/products
  • Energy systems, renewable and maritime

We have industry-oriented researchers with the academic background to observe, understand, model and optimize a wide range of processes and equipment.

We deliver services all the way from observation to optimization, including decision support and innovation.

We find the method best suited to solve your challenge in the most efficient way, methods vary from simple equations through 3D-multiphysics simulations and combination of data driven and physical models to digital twins.

Do you have a process you want to understand, control, optimize or make it more sustainable? Just contact us!

We are passionate about sustainable processes!

Energy systems - renewable and maritime

Some project examples

  • Optimal energy management based on smart meters
  • Delocalised energy systems: Optimalisation of electricity cost wind/battery
  • Mathematical methods for coupling of district heating and geothermal wells
  • Determine economic viability of hotel geothermal heating
  • Modelling and optimalization of maritime hybrid battery/hydrogen drive
  • Hydrogen - value chain, social accept  and production needs

Production and product optimization

Some project examples

  • Design of a marine battery pack enclosure with optimal thermal properties
  • Design of a scrubber tower with optimal non-isothermal flow
  • FE modelling and simulations to verify and optimize the performances of the system
  • Enable production of hoses of higher quality and lower price, enabling use of new raw materials
  • Operate robot in strong magnetic fields at aluminium smelter
  • Verify structural design of floating solar PV
  • Optimalization of installation for floating wind turbines

Metallurgical processes

Some project examples

  • Automation and control systems for the metallurgical industry 
  • Find optimal operation strategy for gravity separation of ore and gangue
  • Mathematical models of electrical conditions for the metallurgical industry
  • Make predictions based on complex physical and chemical couplings
  • Models for process control and decision support
  • Proucing silicon with no direct CO2 emissions (modelling of material flow, energy distribution and thermodynamic calculations of the silicon process and off gas systems)
