SPECIAL SESSION 1 EXPERIMENTAL AND COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (E&CFD) (SS1)
CFD is the study of predicting fluid flow, heat transfer, chemical reaction and other related phenomena by solving a set of governing mathematical equations. The results of CFD analysis are useful for conceptual studies of product design, detail product development, process troubleshooting. Besides, the benefit of CFD modeling is cost saving, timely, safe and easy to scale-up. CFD has proven to be useful and accurate to predict single phase flows and multiphase flows. CFD analysis complements testing and experimentation because CFD can reduce the total effort required in the experiment design and data acquisition. CFD codes turn computers into a virtual laboratory and perform equivalent "numerical experiment", which conveniently providing insight and foresight into the understanding of the complex flow pattern.
This special session aims to gather researchers disciplines to share and discuss their knowledge and experience in solving engineering problems by using CFD m, scientists and engineers from different engineering modeling approach.
