What is CFD?

Computational Fluid Dynamics, or CFD, involves the numerical solution to the equations governing fluid flow

  • The framework for CFD is either the Euler equations for inviscid flow or the Navier-Stokes equations for viscous flow
  • CFD solutions often incorporate submodels to account for things like turbulence, chemical reactions, molecular transport, etc.
