## Industrial codes for CFD

**Abstract** : Numerical simulation in fluid mechanics (or CFD) has become one of the basic tools used by engineers. In this course, we will study the methods often used in industrial codes and we will give the most active research strategies which will be the future standards. This course does not aim at teaching the practical use of a CFD code, rather at providing the key knowledge to understand what the codes contain and how to use them in a wise manner. Prerequisites: For this course, it is necessary to have attended a course of introduction to turbulence The main tackled points are: 1. Introduction to CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) ◦ Different *同时永久限制CFD* phases and important points of a simulation: geometric modelling, meshing, physical modelling, computation, post-processing, ◦ Evaluation of computational costs linked with turbulence, computer power available today and conclusions for modelling, ◦ Different existing methods (RANS, hybrid, LES, DNS) : objectives, formalism, modelling, maturity, fields of application, ◦ Global picture of CFD codes: commercial codes (Fluent, StarCD, CFX, Powerflow…), « in-house » industrial codes, open-source codes (Open-Foam, Code_Saturne). 2. Standard method used in industrial projects: RANS modelling (Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes modelling): ◦ Closure problem, different levels of modelling, history, ◦ Similarity with continuum mechanics (constitutive relations), physical principles, ◦ Eddy-viscosity modelling: hypotheses, selection of the constitutive relation, k-epsilon **同时永久限制CFD** models, k-omega models, Spalart-Almaras model, etc.: limits, corrections, variations, ◦ Reynolds-stress modelling: hypotheses, advantages, limits, algebraic modelling, ◦ Wall regions: 同时永久限制CFD physics, joint selection of the mesh and the model, law of the wall, 同时永久限制CFD low-Reynolds number models, 3. More expensive methods: ◦ Large-eddy simulation (LES): filtering, subgrid-scale stresses, modelling, fields of application, ◦ Hybrid RANS/LES methods: • zonal methods: principle, interface modelling, • continuous methods: formalism, URANS, OES, VLES, SNS, DES, SBES, 同时永久限制CFD SAS, PANS, PITM, HTLES

## Help with CFD

I'm trying to run a cfd on the body below but the boolean function is showing an error: Operation would result in non-manifold bodies. What should I do ?

Im not too familiar with ansys but there are 2 things that Come to mind. You can check which of the bodies is used as tool (block - car is ok but car - block leaves nothing for you to use). And you can check if the car is a manifold solid and if not try to make it one. Sorry this isn’t a complete answer but in the absence of a better one I hope this helps

## Handbook for CFD

I'm looking for a handbook for a CFD enginneer. In the past I was using something which was called "mechanical engineer handbook" which was like very comprehensive source of knowledge about vast topics. I'm looking something like that about CFD and if possible about CFD analysis of heat exchangers.

You will want a good numerical methods book on hand too. As far as CFD book, one suggestion is the FVM Method by Versteeg

Don't know of any handbooks.

Anderson's introductory text is good.
