CFD & Ancient Hindu Science (From Vedas, Yoga & Spirituality)

Hi, Friends. I know you must be curious to know why my blog title is bit weird. Believe me, I have not gone crazy nor am I trying to break my promise of writing blogs on Turbulence model.

Last two weeks, I was on pilgrimage with a 70-year-old young and handsome man (My Grandpa) and 68-year-old young and beautiful lady (My Grandma). They are typical ‘Hindu’ by birth, karma and ‘Samskara’ while, I am a ‘Hindu-Shaivite’ who in many aspects appears as an Atheist. This blog I am writing...

DNS, RANS & Turbulent Modeling In CFD

Posted October 29, 2015 at 01:41 by adarsh tiwari

Hi, Guys! My last blog “2 Funny Cases In CFD” was to chill you up, as mechanics is not only about serious topics and discussion. Mechanical people can also have fun while they work (for professionals ) and learn and study (for students ). Today’s topic is very interesting as I am going to discuss Turbulence Modelling.

Though I will keep on talking and you will keep on reading, as we proceed 😀 😀 , I will try not to bore you, and keep you engaged. At any point...

2 Funny Cases In CFD

Posted October 28, 2015 at 07:17 by adarsh tiwari

In my previous blogs, we had put special emphasis on saying that learning some software is not CFD. You need to have a sound knowledge about the basics of the subject then only you can validate the results.

Today, let’s see an example where the two different cases of same geometry and condition will give two different meaning to CFD. But, let me first warn you, this could be little more technical for first few lines afterwards, you can enjoy the meaning.

Case 1: Colorful...

3 Approaches To Fluid Mechanics

Posted October 28, 2015 at 07:01 by adarsh tiwari

In my previous blog, I had talked about the interpretation of CFD concepts and my discussion was limited to the nature of solution obtained from CFD simulations. In this blog let’s talk about the nature of solutions and its interpretations in real-world applications.

As we look into the classical approach of fluid mechanics, we will see that there were two approaches for the determination of fluid phenomenon. Let’s look into these three approaches in detail.

The 1st...
