Abstract
Many key issuesin design for the process industries are related to the behaviour of fluids in turbulent flow, often involving more than one phase, chemical reaction or heat transfer. Computational-Fluid-Dynamics (CFD) techniques have great potential for analysing these processes and can be of great help to the designer, by reducing the need to resort to cut and try : approaches to the design of complex equipment. The paper presents the fundamental principles of CFD within the context of the so-called finite-domain technique. The procedure can handle one-, two-, and three-dimensional distributions of the variables in space, steady or transient processes, multi-ph...
