Print version Email story Tweet story
News The European Research Community On Flow, Turbulence And Combustion (ERCOFTAC) has commissioned a Best Practice Guidelines (BPG) document for computational fluid dynamics. The document is available through the ERCOFTAC web site and addresses mesh design, boundary conditions, sensitivity checks, and the limitations of turbulence models. Advice was sought from leading researchers and commercial code vendors.

The document has seven chapters which address sources of error and provides short simple bullet-point statements of advice following the discussion.

There are also eight example calculations, calculated by the commercial code vendors, which are explained in detail. These test cases range from natural convection in a cavity through to flow in a low speed centrifugal compressor and in an internal combustion engine valve.
