The numerical simulation of flows, or computational fluid dynamics (CFD), is an effective tool to get information and results in all those industries involved in the fluids mechanics.

It is possible to test and validate the behavior of a system without creating any prototype, through the discretization of the equations of motion of a fluid and their resolution with appropriate calculation codes.
This methodology allows to reduce time-to-market and to give much more information to the designer, especially where experimental measurements are difficult or expensive.

The CFD finds applications in many sectors, including automotive, aerospace, energy, food, chemical, biomedical, environmental, construction and naval.
