Fundamentals of Multidimensional CFD-Codes

  • Gunnar Stiesch
Part of the Heat and Mass Transfer book series (HMT)


The abbreviation CFD stands for computational fluid dynamics which indicates the numerical solution of multidimensional flow problems that may be of unsteady and turbulent nature. In general, multidimensional flow problems are governed by conservation principles for mass energy and momentum. The application of these principles results in a set of partial differential equations in terms of time and space that need to be integrated numerically as they are too complex to be solved analytically.
