In the food & beverage industry, consumers are primary influencers in the innovation process, driving the demand for new, healthy, sustainable and unique products at no additional cost. As such, manufacturers must keep up with the newest trends while adapting their enterprises to become faster and more flexible while maintaining the highest levels of quality and cost-control. Advanced simulations allow manufacturers to develop the complex products to meet new customer demands, providing them with deep insight into the product itself, as well as the most efficient way to manufacture it.
This webinar showcases several real-world applications of multiphysics simulation in the food & beverage industry—Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Discrete Element Modeling (DEM), system simulation, and advanced process modeling—for maximizing food quality, and for scaling up key processes in food processing systems.
The consumer products and cosmetics industries involve highly complex physico-chemical phenomena – multiphase flows, chemical reactions, heat and mass transfer. Fluid-fluid interactions play a crucial role, and flows are laminar as well as turbulent with Newtonian and highly viscous non-Newtonian fluids. Consequently, equipment and process design has traditionally been based on the application of rules of thumb and experience. However, to remain competitive in the market and consistently produce quality products with higher yield, conversion and purity, food & beverage companies are actively turning to a comprehensive digital twin.
This webinar will illustrate the vital role that multiphysics simulation plays in predicting product and process performance in the food & beverage industry.
Over the course of this webinar, you will learn how multiphysics, multi-scale simulation allows food & beverage companies to:
The webinar also features a demo of Simcenter CFD and DEM solutions applied to spray drying—a process that is very widely used in the food & beverage industry to produce powdered products. You’ll learn:
