Computational fluid dynamics

Contents

Idea

This page is about computational fluid dynamics, which is about numerical solutions and approximations to fluid flow problems.

A lot of these problems are described mathematically by some version of a Navier-Stokes equations.

This is important for Meteorology and Climate models. It is also important for the design of cars, rockets etc. but on Azimuth we will be mostly concerned with the former, less with the latter.

Numerical mathematics

Numerical approximations used in CFD are approximations of partial differential equations, like finite elements.
