CFD

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is the branch of CAE that allows you to simulate fluid motion using numerical approaches. Learn how to analyze a wide range of problems related to laminar and turbulent flows, incompressible and compressible fluids, multiphase flows, and more with the cloud-based CFD software component of SimScale.
