What is CFD?

Computational fluid dynamics, usually abbreviated as CFD, is a branch of fluid mechanics which uses numerical methods and algorithms to solve and analyze problems involving fluid flows. It is possible to determine the behavior of liquids and gases virtualy. Computers are used to perform the calculations required to simulate the interaction of liquids and gases in- or outside technical plants or appliances.

Ongoing research improves software which enhance the accuracy and speed of complex simulation scenarios such as transonic or turbulent flows.
