Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is the application and approximate solution of fluid dynamics equations to predict the behaviour of a fluid within a specified boundary. The aim of this article is to give water and wastewater professionals an overview of the basic concepts of CFD modeling, so that they will have a better understanding of how this technology can be applied to their industry.
