Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) obtains solutions of the governing Navier-Stokes fluid flow equations and, depending upon the particular application, solves additional equations involving multiphase, turbulence, heat transfer and other relevant processes.
CFD Research helps industrial and research partners exploit CFD to analyse and understand their flow problems. The outcome is typically an improved equipment or process design. Projects in this area can last from three months to one year.
