New ASCE Publication is a Guide for Computational Fluid Dynamics Modeling

Parul Dubey on October 26, 2023 - in News

Reston, Va. –   The latest technical report from American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Computational Fluid Dynamics Modeling in Water Infrastructure: Best Practices, introduces a general framework for providing the best computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling practices for water infrastructure design and retrofit. CFD uses numerical solutions to analyze the complex problems involving fluid flows. This publication serves as a starting point for a conversation around creating guidelines for computational fluid dynamics modeling in the water-related industry and research community.  

Topics include problem formulation and selection of multiphysics models, meshing techniques and types, initial and boundary conditions, numerical models, selecting the most adequate numerical model and turbulence schemes, mesh independency tests, model verification and validation, documentation and reporting processes, and quality control. Researchers and engineers involved in projects that require CFD of wall-bounded turbulent dispersed multiphase flows, scalar transport, and particulate matter, will find this of particular interest.
