The goal of the CFD-Wiki is to create the ultimate free CFD reference. To do this we are currently working on the following sections:

  1. Reference section
The intention with this section is to create a full-featured text-book on CFD. The goal is to covers basic fluid dynamics, modeling, numerics, and meshing.
  1. Special topics
This goal of this section is to cover special areas of CFD which are often considered as disciplines in their own. Examples of such areas are combustion, heat-trasnfer, aero-acoustics, turbulence, ...
  1. Application areas
This section is intended to cover the larger application areas where CFD is used, like for example aerospace, turbomachinery, automotive industry etc.
  1. Best practise guidelines
These are intended to be a help for CFD engineers to quickly learn about what the state-of-the art is in terms of CFD usage in a certain area. These best-practise guides should be written be experienced engineers and should summarise how CFD should be used, what pit-falls to think of etc.
  1. Validation and test cases
This section contains suitable test-cases which can be used to validate and benchmark CFD codes. The goal is also to include contributed solutions from different codes, models etc.
  1. Source code archive
An archive of source-code which others can use as examples to learn from or cut-and-paste from into their own codes.
  1. FAQ's
Frequantly asked questions in different areas of CFD. There are also dediacted FAQ's for each discussion forum here at CFD Online.
