The Growth of CFD

News Mechanical Engineering Magazine has posted a feature article about the growth of CFD from an academic interest to a heavily relied upon industrial tool.

The article also discusses the move toward combined CAD and CFD packages, a move which mirrors the development of FEA and allows for analysis during design.

"Historically, analysis has been relegated to the research and development departments, or the tail end of the design process," Vincent Harrand of CFD Research said. "Imagine the design engineer who, with minimal training or experience, can assess a series of geometrical variants or a series of unique approaches and determine within minutes fluid flow, heat transfer, thermal or structural stress, or any number of other physical phenomena."
