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
