When I meet God, I am going to ask him
two questions: why relativity? And why turbulence? I really believe he will have answer for the first!
Sir Horace Lamb, 1932, in an address to the British Association for the Advancement of Science:
"I am an old man now, and when I die and go to heaven there are two matters on which I hope for enlightenment. One is
quantum electrodynamics, and the other is the turbulent motion of fluids.
And about the former I am rather optimistic."
Clearly, the complexity of the phenomena of fluid dynamics cannot be explained in any further terms. Indeed, any "CFD simulation" is a rich blend of art, science and technical skills.
When we say that it is an art, we mean that a lot goes into such calculations to exploit the power of this tool to get desired outcome. The application of CFD tool in simulation of Internal Combustion Engines is an example!
The content on CFDyna.com is being constantly refined and improvised with on-the-job experience, testing, and training. Examples might be simplified to improve insight into the physics and basic understanding. Linked pages, articles, references, and examples are constantly reviewed to reduce errors, but we cannot warrant full correctness of all content.
