International Journal of CFD Case Studies - Volume 4

NAFEMS International Journal of CFD Case Studies

Volume 4, January 2004

This journal presents a series of mainly industrial case studies derived from presentations made at a series of NAFEMS' seminars, and specially invited contributions.

Further Details

Each of these case studies has been reviewed by members of the CFD working group to ensure that the paper includes:

  • A full description of the industrial relevance of the case study and why it has been performed;
  • A full description of related experimental or analytical data, together with statements as to their quality and accuracy;
  • A description of the CFD model which allows the interested reader to fully appreciate how it simulates the given industrial case;
  • The CFD model is detailed covering the flow physics, geometry, meshing, boundary conditions, fluid properties and the solving processes;
  • A set of results are presented and discussed to facilitate the reader’s appreciation that the work has been performed well and to a high standard.

Any Journal is only as good as the papers it publishes, so the Journal needs contributors who see the importance and benefit of having their work published and used by fellow engineers. Engineers are by nature supportive of colleagues, and authoring a case study paper for the Journal gives senior engineers an opportunity to pass on their hard won knowledge and experience, and in some sense “set the standard” of practice in the field. The Journal publishes CFD case study papers, i.e. investigations, simulations and validation exercises in accordance with CFD best practice guidelines. Original papers covering either traditional CFD, multi-phase flows, combustion and topics such as parallel computing, immersed boundary methods, DNS, LES, FSI, LBM, DEM, etc. are welcomed, book reviews and letters to the Editor are also acceptable.

Potential contributors are welcome to contact the editor, Professor Don McGlinchey at to discuss any aspect of the Journal and the process, from authoring to review to publication. Further details are available here.
