Introduction to Designbuilder CFD and External CFD analysis

The purpose of this tutorial is to introduce some basic computational fluid dynamics (or CFD) concepts and show how to undertake a simple external CFD analysis. Topics covered:

  • Briefly introduce CFD and some basic principles such as the finite volume grid, iterative convergence and boundary conditions.
  • Set up and run a simple external CFD analysis, briefly introducing concepts such as the CFD grid and monitor points, and show how the calculation results converge towards a solution.
  • Review the results of a simple external analysis.
