CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics)


When engineers work to solve and analyze problems that involve fluid flows, they are using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), a branch of fluid mechanics that uses numerical methods and algorithms to arrive at solutions. Specialized software is used to calculate and simulate the interaction of liquids and gases with surfaces defined by boundary conditions. Numerous iterations are performed and include steady state, transient, laminar, turbulent, and transonic flows.
