- Summary: This is an old Fluent FAQ written by Burley Wang for CFD Online back in 2000. The FAQ was never finished and it was never published either. It is based on questions and answers found on the Fluent forum. Use it to cut-and-paste relevant things from into the Fluent FAQ.

- Summary: The first part of Jonas Larsson's PhD thesis from Chalmers University, Gothenburg. The thesis excludes papers which are copyrighted by ASME etc. It covers some basics on governing equations, turbine blade heat transfer and descriptions of several low-Re two-equation models (Chien model, Launder-Sharma, Nagano-Tagawa, Shih, ...) The report also includes various model improvements like the Kato-Launder modification, the Yap correction etc.

- Summary: Rui Igreja's master thesis at the University of Aveiro, Portugal.
Commonly used methods for injection moulding simulation involve a considerable number of simplifications, leading to a significant reduction of the computational effort but, in some cases also to limitations. In this work, Reaction Injection Moulding (RIM) simulations are performed with a minimum of simplifications, by using the general purpose CFD software package CFX, designed for numerical simulation of fluid flow and heat and mass transfer.
The CFX’s homogeneous multiphase flow model, which is generally considered to be the appropriate choice for modelling free surface flows where the phases are completely stratified and the interface is well defined, is shown to be unable to model the filling process correctly. This problem is overcome through the implementation of the inhomogeneous model in combination with the free-slip boundary condition for the air phase.
The cure reaction is implemented in the code as a transport equation for an additional scalar variable, with a source term. Various transient and advection schemes are tested to determine which ones produce the most accurate results.
Finally, the mass conservation, momentum, cure and energy equations are implemented all together to simulate the simultaneous filling and curing processes present in the RIM process. The obtained numerical results show a good global accuracy when compared with other available numerical and experimental results, though considerably long computation times are required to perform the simulations.
