CFD Modeling

Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Modeling predicts air flow and air temperature anywhere in a computing environment through software simulations. Details of the room dimensions, equipment, and cooling system are used to create a virtual representation (model) of the environment. CEG uses CFD Modeling in conjunction with our assessments or as a stand-alone solution.

Always Accurate CFD with CEG

6SigmaDCX by Future Facilities

6SigmaDCX is the industry’s leading suite of data center CFD modeling tools that integrate IT and engineering operations in capacity planning. Simulation technology allows CEG to safely predict the impact of change on a data center’s resilience, physical capacity and cooling efficiency.

From traditional raised-floor spaces to the latest EDGE facilities, 6SigmaDCX helps CEG design best-in-class data centers. And with the suite’s Virtual Facility feature, we can mimic every aspect of a physical data center to explore what-if scenarios without installing any hardware.

Always Accurate CFD

6SigmaDCX’s simulation capabilities allow us to forecast complex space, power, cooling and weight issues that arise during capacity planning, and ensure that your data center is scalable, efficient and resilient.

CEG uses 6SigmaDCX to design cooling units, floor grills, cabinets and containment systems to maximize their performance.

CEG uses 6SigmaDCX to ensure accurate power and cooling attributes when building custom IT or rack configurations. We will also model their impact on your design or operations.

6SigmaDCX’s Virtual Facility serves as a ‘digital twin,’ allowing CEG to fully plan, measure and simulate data center performance before physical deployment.

CEG uses 6SigmaDCX to look beyond the data center. We can model the impact of prevailing winds on external infrastructure such as chillers, cooling towers and generators, and troubleshoot existing data center issues such as hot spots.
