Welcome to the Center for Computational Fluid Dynamics
Our Research uses selected data to simulate and show real world fluid flows around various spaces and substances.
- Compressible Flow
- Covid-19/Spread of Diseases in the Built Environment
- Free Surface Hydrodynamics
- and many more…
About Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD):
CFD is the systematic application of computing systems and computational solution techniques to mathematical models formulated to describe and simulate fluid dynamic phenomena.
CFD is part of computational mechanics, which in turn is part of simulation techniques. Simulation is used by engineers and physicists to forecast or reconstruct the behaviour of an engineering product or physical situation under assumed or measured boundary conditions (geometry, initial states, loads, etc.).
CFD, by its very nature, encompasses a variety of disciplines, which may be enumerated in the following order of importance:
- Mathematics (classic and numerical analysis, discrete mathematics)
- Computer Science (algorithms, coding, software)
- Visualization Techniques
- User Community (benchmarking, documentation, teaching)
