Abstract:   Endress+Hauser (E+H) is a global leader in measurement instrumentation, services and solutions for industrial process engineering.  Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG is one of the companies of E+H group involved in manufacturing and designing of industrial flow measurement sensors
with high precision for different liquids, gases and steam applications. In order to meet challenging customer and market requirements in terms of accuracy, reliability and robustness of the flow sensors, one has to constantly provide innovative solutions.
Advancements and developments in the field of computational sciences in the past have led to extensive use of numerical methods and high performance computing (HPC) in engineering. Unlike a few years ago, now computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in combination with HPC find plenty of applications and interests in non-conventional that is other than aero-space, turbo machinery industries. At E+H Flowtec, application of these tools is helping us to improve product quality and to find innovative solutions for vortex, thermal, magnetic-inductive, Coriolis and ultrasonic flow meters. It is not only the flow sensors, the HPC is helping to understand flow phenomena in our calibration rigs and consequently supporting us to improve the rigs.
