Everyone with some knowledge about CFD can contribute, so please go ahead and add something about your area of expertise. Things can always be improved later on! It is much better with a short incomplete page on something than no page at all. An incomplete page will encourage others to work further on it. So add whatever you can and leave it to others to improve it later on. + ==Editing, guidelines and policies== + *[[Help:Editing|Editing quick reference]] + *[[CFD-Wiki:Format and style guide|Format and style guide]] + *[[CFD-Wiki:Policy|Policy]] + *For further help on how to edit pages please visit [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Editor WikiMedia Help for Editors] or [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:How_to_edit_a_page How to edit a page].

The most important content policies are: + ==Help & resources== + *[[CFD-Wiki:FAQ|FAQ]] + *[[CFD-Wiki:Community Portal|Community portal]] + *[http://www.cfd-online.com/Forum/wiki.cgi CFD-Wiki discussion forum] - * '''Neutral point of view''' + ==Administration== - :All articles should be written in a neutral point if view without bias, representing different views fairly. The Wiki is not the place to promote or advocate different opinions or interests. Neither is it the place to promote yourself, a certain product or a company. Be very restrictive when writing about yourself, your company, your products or your own research results. See the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NPOV WikiPedia NPOV definition] for more information. This principle is especially important when writing about commercial products. We don't want a Wiki filled with commercial advertising. + *[[CFD-Wiki:Administrators|Administrators]] + *[[CFD-Wiki:Suggested administrators|Suggested new administrator]] + *[[CFD-Wiki:Administration guide|Administration guide]] + *[[CFD-Wiki:Spam blacklist|Spam blacklist]] - *'''No original research''' + ==Small print== - :Do not publish original research in the Wiki. All material added to the Wiki should be established views or facts that are generally accepted in the research community. New research results should first have been published in peer-reviewed journals and conferences before being added to the Wiki. For more information see [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_research WikiPedia's page on original resarch]. + *[[CFD-Wiki:Copyrights|Copyrights]] - + *[[CFD-Wiki:GNU Free Documentation License|GNU free documentation license]] - *'''Verifiability''' + *[[CFD-Wiki:General disclaimer|Disclaimer]] - :Information in the Wiki should be verifiable. Whenever possible include links or references to where the information can be verified. Preferably the information should already have been published by a reputable publisher.  Note that information does not necessarily have to be the one single truth - confliciting opinions might exist. For more information about the principle of verifiability see the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Verifiability WikiPedia article on verifiablity]. + - + - *'''No copyright violations''' + - :Please make sure that all material that you add is free from any conflicting copyrights. Do not add material to which others own the copyrights without their explicit approval. We take copyrights seriously and will delete any material that is found to break someones copyrights. + - + - ===Style guide=== + - + - In order to maintain a common style and format throughout the Wiki please try to follow the guidelines listed below. If you want to suggest new guidelines or discuss formatting issues please post a message on the [http://www.cfd-online.com/Forum/wiki.cgi Wiki forum]. + - + - ==== Naming pages/articles==== + - *Name pages with lower-case letters on all words except the first character. + - *Make sure that the page-name fully identifies the content. For example don't name a page on how to create movies with Fluent "create movies". Instead call it something like "Fluent - how to create movies". You can still link to it with a shorter link-title by using a piped link like this: [[Fluent - how to create movies | create movies]] + - *Do not start page titles with ''The''. For example ''The Navier-Stokes equations'' should be only ''Navier-Stokes equations''. + - + - ====Mathematical formulas==== + - + - * Write mathematical formulas indented with a ":" in the following way: + -
