Hi ,
I am trying to code in VB. Can anyone pl help me regarding this? I mean, I am looking for CFD codes in VB. It may be useful for me as an example.

ther s a person who has been doin CFD coding for over 10 yrs. in VB.... i guess i saw it i the CFD main forum dating yr. 2002...... u may check out ther... u`l find a separate thread devoted to it...

The Open Source CFD code dolfyn is an initiative in Noord-Brabant, a Dutch province in the south of the Netherlands, particularly in the region around Eindhoven. The goal of dolfyn is to promote, introduce and teach the use of modern numerical simulation techniques in general and the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in particular.
Heat and flow

Heat and mass transfer, transport phenomena, and fluid dynamics play an important role in various products, machines and in our daily life.

Examples are:
  • Automotive industry
    • Drag resistance of vehicles
    • Fouling
    • Passenger comfort
  • Heating and cooling
    • Heat exchangers
    • Cooling of electronics
  • Flows in pipes and tubes
    • Industrial installations
    • Airconditioning
  • Wind in the built environment
    • Wind forces
    • Wind nuisance for pedestrians and cyclists
Basic needs

In order to be able to teach and draw young polytechnical and academic students, graduated engineers, and new enthusiasts towards the wonderful world of Computational Fluid Dynamics a couple of issues have to be kept in mind:
  • Courses and tutorials should focus in the first place on a general understanding of fluid dynamics (laminar/turbulent, buoyancy, boundary layers etc.).
  • (Open Source) Software can play an important role in the teaching process (and can augment experimental practica, thus combining theoretical and practical results.).
  • Therefore, the code has to be easy in use; simple variants must be easy to run and the results visualised.
  • In order to catch the attention, real geometries such as cars, heatexchangers and walls should be used as well as flows along flat plates and through pipes.
  • Only when the student has mastered the before mentioned items; then 'gridgeneration' or 'meshing' is the next, and very, very important, step. As gridgeneration is linked closely to the type of solver software, the capabilities of the preprocessor and the skills of the engineer, it is left out of the dolfyn project.
Dolfyn is based on the ideas, algorithms, and procedures presented in the book by J.H. Ferziger & M. Peric "Computational Methods for Fluid Dynamics" (Springer). This book is also acts as Theoretical Manual.

Dolfyn is aimed towards the fulfilment of the above mentioned basic needs and to supply all necessary ingredients.

More specific:
  • Easy to use CFD software for numerical simulations and visualisation of results.
  • Training and courses in fluid dynamics in general, and Computational Fluid Dynamics in particular, accompanied by suitable training material.
  • A network of students, users and specialists.
