Is CFD already completed?

There is no perfect engineering product. A car is noisy and we have to change tyres. An airplane requires tremendous amount of maintenance work, propellers after so many years are still damaged by cavitation etc. It may seem, that we know already everything about CFD and there will be nothing new, and nothing better. Recent introduction of particle systems based on Boltzmann-Lattice methods may give a feeling that we are already at the end of science.


Studying fluid dynamics deeper, from other sources than a standard book describing fluid mechanics helps in discovery that 6th Hilbert problem, which is only partially solved, states that current CFD are far from being optimal. Alexander Gorban, Russian scientist received a prize of American mathematical society, and is regarded as most prominent fluid dynamics specialist worldwide. He is the person who contributed to the solution of 6th Hilbert problem. Accordingly to opinion in most recent research, fluid dynamics is a subject of inter-molecular interactions and probability. Neither Navier-Stokes, which are highly deterministic, nor Lattice-Boltzmann, which are better are perfect solutions. We are still looking for a perfect way to simulate liquid on a computer. We also do not have a perfect solution yet. We are also based on Lattice-Boltzmann. We are not inferior in comparison to other software, though we are tiny team. We would like to add some additional value to Lattice-Boltzmann methods.

But what is so different in CFFD?
Unlike CFD, CFFD does not use Navier Stokes equations to determine the flow direction of the fluid. We are using popular Lattice-Boltzmann equations. In LBM there is a discrete formulation of theory. This is what we want to have on a computer. If you study correctly and carefully university courses about LBM, you will realize that they do not take care about water-solid interface. This is where CFFD begins. And we have a few very interesting ideas which could help in better products. Look at our StreamWay Coatings Lab to see more! We hope that our vision will meet expectations of engineers.
We believe that a wonderful journey is awaiting in front of CFFD and StreamWay.

What is CFFD? Computational Fluid Flow Dynamics (CFFD) is our engine to simulate fluid motion on surfaces of virtual 3D objects. CFFD works based on particles dynamics, thus the simulations are performed in a totally dynamic environment. In addition CFFD takes into account the chemistry of the surface of the virtual 3D object, which directly influences the behavior of the flow of the fluid.
