CFD is now considered an indispensable analysis/design tool in an ever-increasing range of industrial applications. Practical flow problems are often so complex that a high level of ingenuity is required. Thus, besides the development work in CFD, innovative CFD applications are also encouraged. PCFD's ultimate goal is to provide a common platform for model/software developers and users by balanced international/interdisciplinary contributions, disseminating information relating to development/refinement of mathematical and numerical models, software tools and their innovative applications in CFD.


 Topics covered include

  • Turbulence
  • Two-phase flows
  • Heat transfer
  • Chemical reactions and combustion
  • Acoustics
  • Unsteady flows
  • Free-surfaces
  • Fluid-solid interaction
  • Navier-Stokes solution techniques for incompressible and compressible flows
  • Discretisation methods and schemes
  • Convergence acceleration procedures
  • Grid generation and adaptation techniques
  • Mesh-free methods
  • Distributed computing
  • Other relevant topics
