Chapter 1 Introduction

1.1 WHAT IS COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS

Computational fluid dynamics has certainly come of age in industrial applications and academia research. In the beginning this popular field of study was primarily limited to high-technology engineering areas of aeronautics and astronautics, but now it is a widely adopted methodology for solving complex problems in many modern engineering fields. CFD, derived from different disciplines of fluid mechanics and heat transfer, is also finding its way into other important uncharted areas especially in process, chemical, civil, and environmental engineering. Construction of new and better improved system designs and optimization carried out on existing equipments through computational ...
