Re: plz help --- beginner
Did you have any CFD in your chemical engineering course. My supervisor graduated in chemical engineering but then he did his PhD and post-doc in CFD. He has been teaching CFD for 20 years now. So you should be able to study CFD even if you didnt have any CFD in any your chemical engineering. Just out of curiosity why has CFD aspired you?

Thanks Ahmed.

As usual, as part of completion of my chemical engineering graduation I was supposed to do a Project.

I actually did Lid driven cavity problem as my project.I used FVM discretization scheme,wrote a code in c++,Used jacobi iteration scheme with relaxation as solver in the code.

Mid-way in my project I was told by dept. that I had to choose some other project concerned to chemical engineering.I did both the projects!.

Wt interested me in CFD is itz blend of mathematics,Physics,Programming & itz unpredictability.

After my graduation I'm working in a core chemical engineering company & I would like to get into Masters in a year. So, I wanted to know if masters in CFD for chemical engineers is a viable option.
