NAFEMS Quality & Reliability of CFD Simulations Seminar
This is the 6th seminar in the NAFEMS series on Quality and Reliability in Industrial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Simulations are now being used widely across a broad range of industries and increasingly results from these simulations are being relied upon to provide understanding and often both quantitative and qualitative data that is used to design and understand flow systems.
Date: April 8, 2014

Organizer: NAFEMS
Type of Event: Seminar, National

Since the first NAFEMS Quality and Reliability in CFD 
seminar in 2004, accessibility to simulation has increased, 
which has led to more people using analysis tools. We are 
therefore returning to the topics that proved so popular at 
the first Quality and Reliability seminar, helping 
engineers, managers, design teams and industry bodies 
determine the level of trust that can be placed in a 
particular simulation.
