About CEMF
Center of Engineering and Multiscale Modeling of Fluid flow (CEMF) is a research center at the faculty of chemical engineering, Amirkabir University of Technology. We in CEMF focus on the fluid flow and granular modeling and process simulation and integration. We use various modeling techniques that suit process flows in chemical, mineral, food and pharmaceutical industries.  Each of these modeling techniques are suitable for a specific length- and time- scales. So, we may use a combination of these techniques to simulate a system as large as an industrial processing unit and get enough insight into the underlying physics of the flow.
In recent years with fast growth of computational power and numerical tools, various fluid flow modeling tools have been developed. Process simulators, CFD codes, DEM codes, 3D modeling tools, and post processing packages create a platform for us to precisely simulate various processes and obtain critical information about a process and even predict its behavior under various conditions.
We have been developing and using these numerical tools in recent years. We successfully developed robust in-house codes (DEM and CFD-DEM codes) and extend/added sub-models for the available CFD and process simulator packages. Visit our website for more details.
