Hi everyone,

I am new to the field of CFD. I wish to pick up some basics in it and then possibly apply if to turbulence modelling and multiphase flow.

I will appreciate if any one can reccomend a good reference material/software cheers

BOOKS, This is good book for biggeners( An Inroduction to Computationl Fluid Dynamics ) by Versteeg & Malalasekera..

COURSES, I suggest you to join some short courses in CFD basics.

SOFWARE, Fluent is one of the best -I consider it the best-.

Good luck

Hi,

Ahmed is right, Versteeg & Malalasekera's book is very helpful and I found it to be the most helpful. Below are some online site's that might help too.

Andersons book always seems good to me, the silver one cant remember what its called. As for software, i am a big fan of STAR-CD although i havent used fluent i know there is a fairly large amount of people that dont like it, indeed i seem to remember one of the largest topic on this forum a lon long time ago was all about how bad fluent was. Anyway you need to know what cfd is, how it works and its main principals before you go anywhere near a computer. May i sugest though that if you are starting out going straight into complex flow regimes such as multiphase is one hell of a leap, dont run before you can walk!!

I don't agree with you that Fluent is the best. Having used all the three major Fluent, StarCD and CFX, I feel every commercial codes has its own strength and weekness.
