Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is one of the tools available for understanding and predicting the performance of thermal-fluids systems. This article qualitatively describes the basic principles of CFD. The numerical methods, such as geometry description and discretization, used to solve the CFD equations are discussed. The article demonstrates the application of CFD to a few casting problems.
