K8T has a vast knowledge base and understanding in a wide range of applications in regards to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Over the years we have provided presentations to the industry that provide a valuable insight into various applications of CFD and the different ways in which the analysis can be used. K8T is also proud to be part of industry groups such as the Smoke Control Association to continue to increase the understanding of CFD and to ensure that best practise methodology is achieved throughout the industry.


The number of high-rise buildings being constructed has risen substantially over the past three decades presenting numerous challenges for designers and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) practitioners. The use of CFD has been widely accepted in the construction industry as a beneficial tool to provide design and risk assessment analysis to ensure that the design can achieve the design requirements and in the case of life safety is “fit for purpose”.


This paper compares several CFD codes and compares differing approaches and highlights the limitations, computational costs, and computational solution variations between the various CFD codes and modelling approaches using an actual project. The paper will highlight some misconceptions and clarify the significance of differing modelling approaches. logo

"The Mary Rose: The Role of CFD in its Preservation and Final Resting"


At the first CADFEM ANSYS conference in 2006 K8T gave a presentation to a wide range of industry and academics regarding the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in the drying out and resting place for the Mary Rose in the custom built museum in Portsmouth. 

The presentation went through the several phase of the Mary Rose project explaining in technical detail about elements of the CFD workflow from meshing the complex geometry of the ships hull, to the analysis through post processing the vast data from the simulation during key phases of the drying process. The analysis was essential to understanding the process of restoration and preservation of the wreckage of the Mary Rose.
