Computational Fluid Dynamics
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is the science of modeling of fluid flows (air, water, oil, blood, etc.) using numerical approximations. A brief primer can be found in our Introduction to simulation. You will find here links to pages on branches of CFD that are of particular interest to our research group. For more general collections of CFD information, see one of the several directories in the first listing below.

A classic vortex street forming behind a cylinder:
About Developer logo: it shows vorticity in a high-speed flow developing around the letters that form Developer. The word has been typeset using Bookman font in Adobe Illustrator, saved as EPS, and the outlines converted to Gridgen database. A bounding box was added, the grid generated, and fed to the XNS simulation code.
