Fluid engineering

Assessment of fluid and gas flow by determining forces, pressures and speeds.

These are the requirements for the development, design and improvement of flow-conducting components.

This includes work in the area of precision waterjet technology, in particular designing atomising jets and various other types of jets (flat jet, pulsating ...), as well as applications in the area of extreme pressure engineering.

This expertise is also applied in snow cannons.
