This booklet reviews how CFD simulations are run and the requirements needed to do this in terms of software, hardware and suitably skilled people. It has been written to guide those who make commercial decisions about the use of CFD technology and so it is aimed mainly at the industrial user. However, it also has relevance for other users, such as academics seeking to start work in this field.
It discusses the steps that are needed to develop a CFD analysis capability including assessing the need for CFD, obtaining suitable hardware and software, finding and training staff, validating test cases and establishing CFD procedures.
It is hoped that the reader might avoid the common pitfalls that occur when getting started with CFD and will be confident in establishing a CFD capability tuned to their organisation’s requirements.
