4 Why use CFD? Analysis and Design 1. Simulation-based design instead of “build & test” More cost effective and more rapid than EFD CFD provides high-fidelity database for diagnosing flow field 2. Simulation of physical fluid phenomena that are difficult for experiments Full scale simulations (e.g., ships and airplanes) Environmental effects (wind, weather, etc.) Hazards (e.g., explosions, radiation, pollution) Physics (e.g., planetary boundary layer, stellar evolution) Knowledge and exploration of flow physics

8 Modeling Modeling is the mathematical physics problem formulation in terms of a continuous initial boundary value problem (IBVP) IBVP is in the form of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) with appropriate boundary conditions and initial conditions. Modeling includes : 1. Geometry and domain 2. Coordinates 3. Governing equations 4. Flow conditions 5. Initial and boundary conditions 6. Selection of models for different applications
