CFD study to optimize the cooling performance of a narrow specialty tractor

Constant demand for improved engine performance has led to an increase in the heat fluxes through vehicle cooling systems, pushing their design to the limit. In agricultural vehicles, especially in specialty tractors where the hood design is very tight, this cooling problem is compounded: the low vehicle speed, higher operating temperatures and the dirty environment all have a negative impact on cooling performance. In this technical article, a CFD study of various designs for four different specialty tractors: two brands of specialty tractors for vineyard configurations, and two brands of specialty tractors for orchard configurations, are described. The analysis evaluated the heat flow rate distribution in the hood openings, the flow over the cooling packs and their heat dissipation, as well as the flows and the temperature in the underhood and over the cabin, in order to improve the overall cooling performance and operator comfort and safety. The study revealed the strengths and weaknesses in the original design as well as in the subsequent modifications, allowing the thermal management to be improved prior to prototype testing, speeding up the design process and saving time and money.

CFD Consulting Study of Greenhouse Module for Space System

This feasibility study has been carried out to investigate and develop the characteristics of a greenhouse module for a future lunar base
To increase the possibilities for humans to explore space, the development of bio-regenerative life support systems is essential: these systems must fulfill all human needs to sustain a sufficient living condition. In this contest, a greenhouse module is the fundamental part of every concept for a stable and independent base in future space missions. Indeed a greenhouse can (re-)generate essential resources for humans by closing different loops within a habitat, like waste water recycling, CO2 reduction, food and O2 production.
