General Guidelines for Editors

  • The Wiki needs your help! This Wiki will never be better than the information we all fill it with. 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.
  • About 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.
  • Write in a neutral point of view (see the WikiPedia NPOV definition). This is especially important when writing about commercial products. We don't want a Wiki filled with commercial advertising.
  • Please make sure that all material you add is free from any copyrights.


  • Write mathematical formulas indented with a ":" in the following way:

:<math>LaTeX formula goes here</math>

  • In pages with many formulas which you need to reference in the text number the formulas using a HTML table like this:

<table width="100%">
LaTeX for formula one goes here
</td><td width="5%">(1)</td></tr>

  • For definitions and equivalences use "\equiv" (<math>\equiv</math>) and use "=" (<math>=</math>) for equations.
