Any academic degree, let it be bachelors or masters, ends with a project work. The project work is one of the most critical parts of any academic degree. It is so important that it always decides what’s going to be next for the student. Let it be higher studies or industrial job, the whole career path (at least the starting point of that path) is based on the project work. Listen to the webinar recording in which basic rules of CFD project selection are discussed. The webinar also contains aspects like CFD project complexity matrix, CFD learning curve and sample project ideas.

Before getting into the details of the turbulent models let us discuss an important concept known as and know how it is related to turbulence modeling, mesh generation process and how it is going to affect the CFD end result. It is important to know about the concept of wall or in general how the flow behaves near the wall, to consider the effects near the wall as it is the basis on which choice of the turbulence model is governed.

When modelling turbulent flows in CFD, turbulence models require the specification of turbulence variable values at the inlet boundaries. There are several ways to provide turbulence parameters at boundaries. This calculator gives all the turbulence values based on inlet conditions like velocity or mass flow rate, inlet area and fluid properties. It calculates all turbulence values like Turbulent Kinetic Energy (), Turbulent Dissipation (), Specific Rate of Dissipation (), Turbulent Viscosity Ratio (), Turbulence Intensity () and Turbulence Length Scale ().

In recent years, there has been growing interest by various engineering product companies to perform design simulation studies at different stages of product development to compete in the market. This has consistently resulted in increased requirement of skilled CFD resources and proving to be  a very good career opportunity for engineers aspiring to make a career in the interesting domain of heat transfer and fluid flows. However there seems to be a widespread confusion in the student community as to what skills are desired by these industries for a fresher to qualify.

Understanding the turbulent behaviour of fluids is one of the most fascinating, forbidding & critical problems in all of classical physics. Turbulence is omnipresent, as most of the fluid flows are turbulent in nature right from the microscopic level at interior of biological cells to the macroscopic scales of the geophysical and astrophysical phenomena including planetary interiors, oceans and atmospheres that represent the dominant physics of turbulent fluid flows.
