News A delusion is a strongly held belief despite superior evidence to the contrary.

Almost every person who has performed a CFD analysis has experienced delusion to some degree at one time or another.  The thrill that CFD creates by enabling us to visualize the invisible tempts us to believe the fluid always behaves exactly as calculated. In reality, a CFD analysis can be fraught with potential errors that can create inaccurate results if not properly considered.
