ANALISIS-DSC is a Spanish engineering SME in the area of mechanics and industrial processes, focusing on the areas of fluid mechanics (CFD), heat transfer, mechanical-structural (FEA) and granular flows (DEM) using CAE software tools. Specifically, we work in:
- Basic Engineering
- Failure Engineering
- Products and Industrial process Optimization
- Industrial Process Scale-up
- Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC).
We participated as partners in the H2020 SPIRE project about process intensification (IbD). Currently we are participating in 4 European H2020 projects: ASTEP related to solar thermal energy, BioSPRINT about biorefineries, NanoPAT related to nanotechnology and DIY4U about FMCG customization. Additionally, we are currently involved in 2 Horizon Europe projects: DIVINE related to agriculture and EXCEED related to mining. Finally, we have been awarded another project in energy to be started in April 2023.
