New European Ecodesign regulations limit the energy consumption of residential ovens and our client wanted to identify the most cost-effective options to permit their US models to meet the EU requirements.

We developed and ranked a set of design, materials and operating mode modifications to achieve target energy consumption, and then built a transient computational fluid dynamic model to simulate the impact of these options on energy test performance.

We leveraged our experience in cost-effectively applying complex, transient, multiphysics simulations to solve real world problems, as well as our longtime practical experience in appliance devlopment and testing, to identify optimal solutions.
