The physics of almost every fluid flow and heat transfer phenomenon is

governed by three fundamental principles -mass conservation, momentum

conservation (or Newton's second law) and energy conservation -taken

together with appropriate initial or boundary conditions. These three principles

may be expressed mathematically in most cases through integral or partial

differential equations (POE) whose closed form solutions rarely exist. The

ability to seek numerical solutions of these governing equations has led to the

development of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFO).

To obtain numerical solution to the physical variables of the fluid field,

various techniques are employed:

• manipulating the defining equations

• dividing the fluid domain into a large number of small cells or control

volumes (also called mesh or grid)

• transforming partial derivatives into discrete algebraic forms and

• solving the sets of linear algebraic equations at the grid points

Modem CFO can handle fluid flow associated with other phenomenon such

as chemical reactions, multi-phase or free surface problems, phase change

. (melting, boiling, freezing), mass transfer (dissolution) and radiation heat

transfer. A CFO code has three basic components -preprocessor, solver and

postprocessor. The solver is the heart of a CFO code and is usually treated as a

'black box' while the other two components provide user/computer interface.

Solver is based on one of the three major discrete methods -finite difference

method (FOM), finite element method (FEM) or finite volume method (FVM).

FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS

Over 90% of CFD codes are based on FDM or FVM. FVM is now very well

established and is used in most commercial CFD packages like FLUENT,

FLOW-3D.

FEM was initially developed for structural analysis but has been extended to

fluid flow problems as it offers the advantage of non-regular grid, capable of

simulating complex boundary geometries. Also, the methodology used for

describing flow conditions within each cell, though more complex than FDM,

have a higher degree of accuracy. FVM draws together best attributes of FDM

and FEM. It is capable of simulating complex boundary geometries while

utilising relatively straight forward finite difference relationships to represent

the governing differential equations. Complete presentation of FDM and FVM

are not in the scope of this book. FDM is detailed below as some of these ideas

are also used in FVM.
