CFD Explained for Engineers

CFD is Non-Linear and More Difficult to Tame than Structural FEA Unlike static structural analysis and other physical modelling regimes, the Navier-Stokes formulae are partial differential equations that for most interesting geometries and realistic flow conditions, do not have an analytical solution.   For realistic problems, you can’t just plug algebraic terms into Matlab.  Numerical methods

UQ with Dakota & FieldView XDB Workflow at Overset Grids Symposium October 17–20, 2016

As CFD users increasingly exploit ultrascale HPC capability and approach the realm of exascale, they will run studies consisting of many related simulations at very high fidelity. This will give engineers and researchers both the ability and need to assess the quality of their simulations. When simulation quality has been vetted, engineering judgments and investment decisions can
