Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for Water, Chemical, 
and Environmental Engineering

About Us

Founded in 2005, The Fluid Group provides state-of-the-art, 3D flow modelling from first principles.


Based in the Oxford Science Park, we have worked on some of the largest engineering projects in the world, and helped a range of expanding businesses bring innovative products to market.


3D modelling can confirm whether a new engineering design will meet objectives, or examine why a poorly operating system is failing.


At The Fluid Group you have access to the some of the most advanced simulation expertise in fluids today, from reservoir design to human arteries; from wastewater treatment to gas production.

In the water and environmental sector, CFD modelling is used to optimse the design and operation of mixing tanks, reservoirs, pumping stations, filters, clarifiers, digesters ... and much more.


Our broad range of experience stretches from industrial mixing and separation, to the combination of chemistry and hydraulics; from viscous sludges (even glassy materials) to water and air; optimising energy from waste with plasma arc technology, to drinking water disinfection.


Past projects range from the largest desalination plant in the world to a flow around a Napoleonic shipwreck; from optimising methane production in a digester to refining the distribution of vegetable oil in food production.


We also undertake research: modelling everything from blood flow, renewable energy, hydrogen fuel storage or nanoparticles in magnetic fields.
