CFD developments in the Northern European countries
2009 (English)In: 100 Volumes of ‘Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics’: 40 Years of Numerical Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics in Retrospect, Springer, 2009, 133-143 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter briefly surveys the CFD developments in the Nordic countries. The focus chosen is on the major current tools in use with just sketchy indication of the origins of these tools and how they evolved from earlier legacy codes. The developments in Sweden surveyed here are selected from four domains: fundamental studies of turbulence and transition, ship hydrodynamics, aeronautical CFD and numerical weather prediction. The developments in Norway begin with a historical survey of the formulation of models and then lead into present-day contributors of computational methods and codes. The developments in Denmark focus mainly on wind turbine aerodynamics and how the Danes have successfully developed the EllipSys3D code and became leaders in the wind energy business. In Finland at Helsinki University of Technology researchers have produced the FINFLO code and applied it to computational aerodynamics, ship flows and to the development of new turbulence models. Work at the Finnish Meteorological Institute is also mentioned.
