Chimera Technologies, Inc.
Chimera Technologies specializes in ANSYS FLUENT-based particle dynamics model development and consulting using the Fine Particle Model (FPM) that Chimera co-developed with Particle Dynamics GmbH (www.particle-dynamics.de). The FPM user interface is tightly integrated with the ANSYS FLUENT GUI, permitting easy setup of standard particle-dynamics simulations.
Although the FPM can be used for a broad range of particle dynamics simulations, Chimera specializes in simulating submicron particle formation, growth, and transport dynamics in chemical reactors. The tight integration of the FPM with ANSYS FLUENT means that the full power of ANSYS FLUENT gas-phase fluid flow, heat transfer, and chemical reaction simulations can be enhanced with FPM simulations of particle nucleation, growth, and transport. Chimera specializes in customizing the FPM for clients to simulate particle dynamics in gas-phase chemical reactors, such as TiO2 pigment formation.
