Analysis of wind pressure coefficients on a cube with CFD simulation via Code_Saturne

Comparison of wind pressure coefficients on a cube between experimental results and some CFD approaches with code_saturne Abstract This article is an investigation about the CFD modeling of strain effects generated by wind on buildings. This analysis has been done with the open- source software code_saturne[1] with which several turbulence models have been tested. The

What is CFD?

What do CFD? Through my professional activity, I offer companies expertise in CFD, or numerical modeling in fluid mechanics. “And what is it?” I have already been told. Here is, for those who are not familiar with it, what my job consists of. Fluid mechanics… With computers CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) consists in studying physics
