Engineering Simulation

Engineering Simulation:  Engineering simulation offers a transformative approach for optimizing design, reducing time-to-market, and cutting costs by predicting system behavior under real-world conditions across structural, thermal, fluid, and electromagnetic applications. Leveraging these advanced simulations enables innovation, enhances product reliability, and streamlines development processes. It’s a strategic investment that empowers decision-making, drives efficiency, and secures a competitive edge in today’s fast-paced market.

Computational Fluid Dynamics: Also known as CFD.  Few things are more critical in a data center than its cooling.  There is more to cooling efficiency than simply putting one more air conditioning unit into the room than there are kilowatts of load.  In fact, many rooms perform very poorly due to flaws in air movement within a room.  GDCE are a global leader in CFD modeling, simulation and analysis, utilizing FutureFacilities leading modeling tools, we model both inside the data center, and outside for maximum optimization of the data center cooling.  We reduce cost by reducing energy utilized, while maximizing capacity by removing barriers to optimal heat extraction.

  • About GDCE

Global Data Center Engineering (GDCE) is on a mission: To End Outage in the Data Center Caused by Human Error. We believe the core of that capability is first rooted in solid data center design, which includes designing for Human Error Management. Keeping Human Error Management at the forefront of design focus, coupled with a world class staff of highly experienced and certified professionals, sets us apart from other design practices.

At GDCE, we are passionate about data center design and operation. Ensuring that data centers perform to expected capability and beyond is our specialty. Have a data center that is not performing to expectations? Call us, and we can help. Need your data center validated by a 3rd party? Our expert teams have extensive global experience in validating and certifying data centers to known global standards.

TIA-942-C data center standard has been approved to publish during the TR-42 Technical Committee plenary on 8 February 2024.  This milestone marks a two-year revision cycle where members from around the globe gathered three times a year to craft the most significant update that the standard has ever had.  We are excited to note that with this closure, GDCE was the stand-out leader in the revision, with 226 technical comments, nearly 100 editorial comments with over 250 of our comments accepted into the standard.  We accounted for 37% of all contributions to this revision of the standard.  We are very pleased with this outcome, and the TIA-942 standard is now stronger than ever, and GDCE have led the way.  (It takes the combined total of the next 4 contributors to equal our contribution to this standard.  Partner with a leader in the TIA-942 standard for certification.  We know it better than anyone!
