and flow velocity. CFD is based on finite elements calculations.Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Tools Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulation software has been used for more than twenty years in the aerospace and automobile industries. at selected sites of the simulated volume. for instance pressure. July 06. but it is recently being applied to new industry fields where heat transfer and fluids distribution problems are present. It is possible to define calculation objectives. The software creates and calculates the Navier± Stokes equations for every cell within the mesh starting from defined boundary conditions. The simulation software divides the 3D surface in discrete cells creating a mesh. 2010 5 . temperature.
