FlowMotion Trophy Golfresort de Purmer After 3 tough rounds of golf at the FlowMotion  Trophy, Team NL won all categories of the  tournament.  Due to the extraordinary performace Team NL is  only one point behind the leading  Team DE in  the all time ranking.  Congratulations!
Infrared Thermography FlowMotion offers measurements with a high resolution infrared camera. With this device 2D temperatures with an accuracy of centigrades celsius can be measured. Our primary applications are the detection of heat leakages in buildings, defects in solar panels, humidity and cracks in structures.
Infrarot Thermography - FlowMotion
RCC Koude & Luchtbehandeling Norms, experiments or CFD In nearly all technical disciplines there are  many ideas, how to solve fluid dynamical and  heat transfer problems. These are based on  experience or intuition.  In this release of the journal the advantages   and the disadvantages of apllying norms,  experiments and CFD in a project. In either case: Think first and then start. 
With the help of CFD  calculations  the velocity, temperature, humidity  distribution and the odour nuisance down to plant level can be determined. For example tomatos and canabis require an extremely homogenous climate, to ensure maximum growth and minimum plant diseases. Simulations not only “make the invisible visible”, but can also help to optimize the setup  and the ventilations concepts of the greenhouses in an early concept phase of the design.
FlowMotion has finally completed its 3D models of all Boeing and Airbus planes. These models and the models of the airports are applied to simulations of wind load on buildings, comfort of visitors, maintenance of airplanes. Each airplane includes a simplified model of the jet engines, which is used to investigate the influence of the jet engines on e.g. blast deflectors, hangars and the surrounding traffic. FlowMotion has already offered these kind of services to many airports like Munich, Duesseldorf, Hamburg, Zuerich, Geneve, etc.
Fresh air in greenhouses
Airplane fleet is finally complete
Since more than 10 years FlowMotion  investigates and optimizes the climate in greenhouses
The list of explanations will continously added. If you do not find a sufficient answer to any questions concerning fluid dynamics or heat transfer, do not hesitate to contact us. We will publish it on the FlowDoc page as soon as possible. 
Measurement techniques
Besides the measurements the infrared camera is also used to obtain thermal boundary conditions  for simulations of processes, in which heat transfer plays a dominate role.

Contamination of water
Water can get polluted by many sources. People are throwing plastics and other stuff into the water, causing all kinds of problems. Therefore ocean clean up is more important than ever before. Spillage of liquids from ships can also cause high unwanted nearby concentrations of pollution. If someone is interested in very local effects, a detailed study of the flow in the area of the ship and its surroundings needs to be carried out. CFD can be one of the tools to do this.
LNG shaken not stirred
Liquefied / liquid natural gas, abbreviated to LNG, is a mixture of mainly methane with possible residual gases such as nitrogen, propane and ethane. Methane is liquid at normal pressure at cryogenic temperatures of approximately -162 ° C.
LNG is often transported by sea. From the factories that produce LNG, ships sail to, for example, import terminals, where  the LNG can be evaporated by adding heat. After evaporation of LNG, natural gas then enters the pipeline network for use in factories, power plants and households.
However, there are also ships that use the LNG directly as fuel for their own propulsion. The LNG is then in a fuel tank from which the LNG is extracted. On a rough sea, the liquid in the tank can carry on considerably.
This has adverse effects on the evaporation of the LNG because it comes into more contact with the air in the tank. And when the tank becomes emptier, it may happen that not enough LNG is offered to the fuel pump, which can cause the engine to stop. T The movement of fuel LNG in a sloshing tank is simulated with the help of CFD. The unique thing about this simulation is that the movement that the tank makes on the ship is the actual movement relative to the surface of the water.
