Thermofluids is the study of fluid flow and heat transfer. In very many engineering applications as well as in nature, thermofluid phenomena are the main process by which systems operate. Examples vary from the flow of blood through the heart, through the deposit of chocolate into a mould to the heating of the space shuttle as it re-enters the atmosphere. Understanding and controlling thermofluid phenomena is key to the successful engineering function.
Since 1987, S & C Thermofluids has strived to provide fast flowing solutions to thermofluid challenges in engineering. The company combines its range of engineering tools - both computational and experimental - with the expertise of its engineers to develop engineering products and systems.
S & C uses multi-purpose Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) packages to a wide range of applications and undertakes consultancy in CFD modelling as well as providing codes for external use (for example PLUMES and FEMVIEWIR).
S & C also strives to match its computational capabilities with cost effective experimental facilities.
Innovation is a major part of S & C Thermofluids' approach to finding engineering solutions. The company has over 20 granted Patents some of which have been obtained jointly with customers. The company has received an Engineering Council Environmental Award and was successful in obtaining accreditation for its quality management system to ISO9001:2000.
S & C Thermofluids has worked with a wide range of customers across many disciplines. The company has worked closely with the MoD's Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, and through this relationship has been able to offer affordable solutions in technology development to key aerospace organisations such as Rolls-Royce, MBDA, Thales and QinetiQ.
