Go back to Day 2.

[https:// Transport equation]

In previous tutorials you might have seen fancy equations, which describe different phenomena in fluid dynamics. They might even be familiar from lectures, that you attended in the past. In this [https:// video] you will get a detailed introduction to the most basic and also most general equation, which you will find in CFD, the basic transport equation. We will discuss

  • the solver
  • case setup
  • transport phenomena like convection and diffusion
  • influence of constants
  • simulation of scalar transport
  • post processing

A deep understanding of the general transport equation is important, as you can derive from it all the important equations, which you will want to solve within your CFD project.
