What is CFD?

Historically Analytical Fluid Dynamics (AFD) and EFD

(Experimental Fluid Dynamics) was used. CFD has become

feasible due to the advent of high speed digital computers.

Computer simulation for prediction of fluid-flow phenomena.

The objective of CFD is to model the continuous fluids with

Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) and discretize PDEs into

an algebra problem (Taylor series), solve it, validate it and

achieve simulation based design.

Why

use CFD?

More cost effectively and more rapidly than with experiments

CFD solution provides high-fidelity database for interrogation of

flow field

measured by experiments

Scale simulations (e.g., full-scale ships, airplanes)

Hazards (e.g., explosions, radiation, pollution)

Physics (e.g., weather prediction, planetary boundary layer, stellar

evolution)

Modeling

Some problems are exact (e.g., laminar pipe flow)

Exact solutions only exist for some simple cases. In these cases nonlinear

terms can be dropped from the N-S equations which allow analytical solution.

Most cases require models for flow behavior [e.g., Reynolds Averaged Navier

Stokes equations (RANS) or Large Eddy Simulation (LES) for turbulent

flow]

Conservation of matter, momentum, and

energy must be satisfied throughout the

region of interest.

Fluid properties are modeled

empirically.

discretization) to develop approximations of the

governing equations of fluid mechanics in the fluid

region of interest.

Governing differential equations: algebraic.

The collection of cells is called the grid.

The set of algebraic equations are solved

numerically (on a computer) for the flow field

variables at each node or cell.

System of equations are solved simultaneously to

provide solution.

The solution is post-processed to extract quantities of

interest (e.g. lift, drag, torque, heat transfer,

separation, pressure loss, etc.).

Discretization

Domain is discretized into a finite set of control volumes

or cells. The discretized domain is called the grid or the mesh.

General conservation (transport) equations for mass, momentum, energy,

etc., are discretized into algebraic equations.

All equations are solved to render flow field.

meshes can provide high-quality

solutions with fewer cells than a

comparable tri/tet mesh.

meshes show no numerical

advantage, and you can save

meshing effort by using a tri/tet

mesh.

32

Specific regions can be meshed with

different cell types.

Both efficiency and accuracy are

enhanced relative to a hexahedral or

tetrahedral mesh alone.

Convergence is reached when:

Changes in solution variables from one iteration to the next are

negligible.

Residuals provide a mechanism to help monitor this trend.

Overall property conservation is achieved.

The accuracy of a converged solution is dependent upon:

Appropriateness and accuracy of the physical models.

Grid resolution and independence.

What is the overall flow pattern?

Is there separation?

Where do shocks, shear layers, etc. form?

Are key flow features being resolved?

Are physical models and boundary conditions appropriate?

Numerical reporting tools can be used to calculate quantitative

results, e.g:

Lift, drag, and torque.

Average heat transfer coefficients.

Advantages of CFD

Using physical experiments and tests to get essential engineering data for

design can be expensive.

CFD simulations are relatively inexpensive, and costs are likely to decrease

as computers become more powerful.

Speed.

CFD simulations can be executed in a short period of time.

Quick turnaround means engineering data can be introduced early in the

design process.

Ability to simulate real conditions.

Many flow and heat transfer processes can not be (easily) tested, e.g.

hypersonic flow.

CFD provides the ability to theoretically simulate any physical condition.

44

Limitations of CFD

Physical models.

CFD solutions rely upon physical models of real world processes (e.g.

turbulence, compressibility, chemistry, multiphase flow, etc.).

The CFD solutions can only be as accurate as the physical models on

which they are based.

Numerical errors.

Solving equations on a computer invariably introduces numerical errors.

Round-off error: due to finite word size available on the computer.

Round-off errors will always exist (though they can be small in most

cases).

Truncation error: due to approximations in the numerical models.

Truncation errors will go to zero as the grid is refined. Mesh refinement is

one way to deal with truncation error.

45

Boundary conditions.

As with physical models, the accuracy of the CFD solution

is only as good as the initial/boundary conditions provided

to the numerical model.

Example: flow in a duct with sudden expansion. If flow is

supplied to domain by a pipe, you should use a fullydeveloped profile for velocity rather than assume uniform

conditions.
