Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and its application to textile technology
P. Jungbecker and D. Veit, RWTH Aachen University, Germany
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) deals with numerical flow simulation. By applying CFD, even complex problems can be solved using a numerical iteration process. A commonly used method involves the Navier–Stokes equations which represent a system of equations for continuity, impulse and energy conservation of a fluid. Typical examples for the simulation of complex flows are the air current around aircrafts and inside cars, and the modelling of heat transfer for a wide range of applications, including in textile processing.
