### Use of machine learning in computational fluid dynamics

Background: I have only built one working numeric solution to 2d Navier-Stokes, for a course. It was a solution for lid-driven cavity flow. The course, however, discussed a number of schemas for ...

### Getting streamline for a lid driven cavity flow in openFoam/ParaView

I have installed openFoam on Debian GNU/Linux and learning from official user guide. I have a problem with generating streamlines. I am trying to generate streamlines as explained in the post ...

### Why are fluid simulations so hard?

Fluid simulations solving the hydrodynamic (HD) or the magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) equations are very useful in physics, the latter being particularly useful for modeling plasmas. Of course these ...

### Probability Density Function of DNS velocity field [duplicate]

I am currently working on a DNS turbulent solver and I would like to compare my IHT simulations to papers. Those papers show the Probability Density Function of the velocity field: I would like to ...

### Open Boundary Conditions for Solving Navier Stokes in moving ALE domain

I'm trying to solve the problem of a body freely rising in a fluid due to gravity, the density of the body is just slightly less than that of the fluid. The body is rigid, so I have to solve a ...

### What programming language should I choose and why?

I am a mechanical engineer, intermediated/advanced level in MATLAB and MATHEMATICA, and beginner in Python. I intend to get a PhD in aeroelasticity (FEM + CFD) and coding my own program. I intend to ...

### Convection equation expanded in Legendre polynomials

In some areas of physics, for example radiation transport in plasmas, it is beneficial to re-express the convection equation in terms of a Legendre polynomial expansion. This results in a set of ...

### Import stl file into Gmsh and create a 3d mesh for CFD

I am trying to develop a case study for teaching CFD. To this end, I am using OpenVSP, Gmsh and SU2. I have created a wing in OpenVSP, exported the CFD mesh as .stl file. Opened the .stl file in Gmsh ...
