Understanding and controlling the flow of liquids, gasses and heat is of critical importance in the pharmaceutical, medical and biotechnology industries. Sub-optimal flows can increase the risk of quality control problems, contamination and drug delivery complications. Synergetics expert consultants use advance computer modelling tools, such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD), to determine system sensitivies, optimise performance, improve clinical trial results and provide validation early in the design process, avoiding costly concerns down the line. Examples of this include:

 

Wall shear stress on the surface of forked artery section

Figure 1: CFD has a wide range of applications in pharmaceutical, medical and biotechnology fields. In this example, wall shear stress at the surface of an artery has been computed, indicating regions at increased risk of thrombosis.
