Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics
Lecture # 01Introduction to CFDJetWings1
What is fluid flow?
Fluid flows encountered in everyday life include
meteorological phenomena (rain, wind, hurricanes, floods, fires)
environmental hazards (air pollution, transport of contaminants)
heating, ventilation and air conditioning of buildings, cars etc.
combustion in automobile engines and other propulsion systems
interaction of various objects with the surrounding air/water
complex flows in furnaces, heat exchangers, chemical reactors etc.
processes in human body (blood flow, breathing, drinking ...)
and so on and so forth
Lecture # 01Introduction to CFDJetWings2
What is CFD?
Computational Fluid Dynamics
(CFD) provides a qualitative (andsometimes even quantitative) prediction of fluid flows by means of 
mathematical modeling (partial differential equations)
numerical methods (discretization and solution techniques)
software tools (solvers, pre- and postprocessing utilities)CFD enables scientists and engineers to perform ‘numerical experiments’(i.e. computer simulations) in a ‘virtual flow laboratory’real experimentCFD simulation
