Computational Fluid Dynamics

Computational fluid dynamics is a mathematical discipline which numerically calculates the properties of a flowing liquid, such as velocity, pressure, temperature and turbulence parameters.

CFD is used in a wide variety of engineering disciplines including civil, railway, river, coastal, tidal, meteorological and chemical engineering. There are a variety of CFD packages that are commercially available include ANSYS CFX, ANSYS FLUENT and the open-source software OpenFoam. A wide variety of add-ons are available for these programs to extend the core functions of velocity and pressure calculation to suit the application under consideration.

These pages will give you examples of how you can engage with the CFD community at the University of Birmingham, in order to further your understanding of how CFD can help with your research.
