CFD stands for Computational Fluid Dynamics. It's a branch of fluid mechanics that utilizes numerical methods and algorithms to solve and analyze problems related to fluid flow. CFD employs computer simulations to model the behavior of fluids (liquids and gases) and their interactions with surfaces.
By breaking down complex fluid dynamics equations into discrete computational units, CFD allows engineers and scientists to simulate and predict fluid behavior in various scenarios. It finds extensive applications in industries like aerospace, automotive, environmental engineering, and more, aiding in designing efficient and optimized systems by studying fluid flow patterns, heat transfer, turbulence, and other related phenomena.
