Computational Fluid Dynamics

Welcome to the Computational Fluid Dynamics(CFD) toolbox. This module explains how to use the Laminar Flow interface to model and simulate fluid mechanics for laminar, incompressible fluids.

The engineering community often uses the term CFD, computational fluid dynamics, to refer to the numerical simulation of fluids.

1. Features

  • 2D and 3D

  • Stokes flows

  • Laminar Incompressible flows

  • Steady and unsteady simulations

  • BDF time schemes up to order 4

  • Moving domain support using Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) formulation

  • Support high order geometry including in context of moving domain

  • Stabilization pressure and advection dominated using Galerking Least Square

  • Boundary conbditions : no-slip, slip(symmetry), inflow(not necessarily aligned with an axis), pressure, outflow
