Computational fluid dynamics
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) stands for the description of the
properties of fluid by solving physical equations using computational
methods. CFD together with experiments and mathematical analysis helps
to understand phenomena detected in fluids. CSC provides outstanding
facilities for performing CFD. Our CFD experts have a wide experience
in modeling fluid phenomena and we have an extensive selection of
commercial software for CFD and powerful supercomputers to carry out
the computations. Moreover, we provide training in the field of CFD.
