 November 17, 1999, 10:37 Re: BEGINNING #3 John C. Chien Guest   Posts: n/a (1). It is very simple. (2). CFD is Computational Fluid Dynamics. That is to use a computer to solve fluid dynamics problem. (3). If you prefer to use experimental approach, then I would call it EXPFD. (4). So, you need to know something about a computer, computer programming, in addition to the basic fluid dynamic knowledge. (5). So, if you know how to write a computer program and also know some fluid dynamics, then you can start doing CFD. (6). There are books about CFD and different ways to solve different types of equations in fluid dynamics. You can pick the one wich will match your background. (7). If you had heat conduction before and knows how to use numerical methods to solve heat conduction problem, then you should not have any problem at all. (8). The rule is: Do not touch a commercial CFD code, unless you are prepared to ask a sequence of endless questions. (9). Commercial CFD codes are for people who are interested in the CFD solutions, not the CFD code questions.
