This was the 6th seminar in the NAFEMS series on Quality and Reliability in Industrial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
Simulations are now being used widely across a broad range of industries and increasingly results from these simulations are being relied upon to provide understanding and often both quantitative and qualitative data that is used to design and understand flow systems. The complexity of the system simulated can mean that direct validation is rarely trivial and sometimes impossible, so it is important for the engineer to understand the level of confidence that can be placed on the outcomes.
Since the first NAFEMS Quality and Reliability in CFD seminar in 2004, accessibility to simulation has increased, which has led to more people using analysis tools. We therefore returned to the topics that proved so popular at the first Quality and Reliability seminar, helping engineers, managers, design teams and industry bodies determine the level of trust that can be placed in a particular simulation.
