A CFD Primer: What Do All Those Colors Really Mean?
MetadataShow full item record
This tutorial provides a general overview of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). It is not intended for CFD experts but rather for those seeking answers to questions such as: What is the role of CFD in the design / analysis process? What is CFD? What benefits can be derived from CFD? What are the typical deliverables from CFD? In addition to answering the above questions, the session will also offer several sample cases illustrating some practical applications of CFD in day-to-day design, analysis and trouble-shooting processes.
