Implementing a physical experiment represents a clear bridge between concepts and application. Let AFD make this possible by designing and implementing an experimental program aimed at obtaining and analyzing purposeful data for your application.
Computational Fluid Dynamics
Computational Fluid Dynamics employs numerical methods to solve the equations describing fluid flows. This provides a wealth of predictive capability for your application. The advantage of this modelling technique is that optimization may be performed on a computer minimizing costly iterative design.
An analytical model generally involves the use of simplified equations and empirical (or semi-empirical) correlations. Such analysis can enable improved design concepts prior to higher-order approaches involving either experimentation or high-fidelity computations.
