|ICFD Workshop on the Use of CFD Packages - Opportunities and Challenges|
|The workshop will contribute to cross-fertilisation between application areas. Packages developed for one application may well contribute to others.|
|Date:||April 15, 2003|
|Location:||Oxford University Computing Laboratory, Oxford, United Kingdom|
|Application Areas:||General CFD|
|Deadlines:||April 11, 2003 (abstract), April 11, 2003 (registration)|
|Type of Event:||Seminar, National|
The use of CFD packages is widespread as a cost-effective way to solve practical problems. One issue to be discussed is to what extent existing packages cover new fluid flow applications; such as those arising in rheology, flows in the earth's interior or biomedical applications as well as macroscopic models such as models of traffic flow. Another issue is to what extent new requirements can be best met by extending existing packages; and to what extent they are best met by developing software specific to individual problems.
Many industries have come to rely on in-house codes that are showing their age. Economics prevents the scrapping of these codes. They have the characteristic of enshrining old methods in a relatively fixed resource. The issue is whether more cost effective enhancements in performance could be obtained by switching to a packaged solution.
The meeting will also contribute to cross-fertilisation between application areas. Packages developed for one application may well contribute to others
The workshop will take place at Oxford University Computing Laboratory, Wolfson Building, Parks Road, Oxford, starting at 10.00 am with coffee.
