Abstract

An intelligent user interface for computational fluid dynamics software J. Ewer, M. Petridis, D. Cowell & B. Knight Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computing, The University of Greenwich, London SE18 6PF, UK ABSTRACT The development of advanced and successful numerical modelling packages for Computational Fluid Dynamics ( CFD ) within recent years has led to their widespread use in engineering and industrial environments. Increasingly this has led to a situation where package users have little or no specialist knowledge of the underlying physical principles upon which CFD packages are based. Generally users also have limited knowledge of the numerical software itself, or how to obtain accurate results efficiently. However this knowledge can often be vital to the correct usage of the software for producing reliable simulation data. This paper describes an on-going research project to incorporate such expert knowledge into CFD software. The special pr
