CFD refers to a set of computational simulation techniques that are used to find and interpret computational solutions for conservation equations for physical substances that are important in a flow. Examples of these include Mass conservation, Energy conservation, and energy efficiency.
CFD simulation methods can predict chemical and physical effects that happen in the flow. They can approximately simulate physical phenomena for differential equations. The differences in the simulations are due to the residuals or errors. To solve the problems of CFD it is necessary to define the problem, i.e. its geometry, flow conditions, and the conditions to simulate.

What's the CFD significance?
In CFD it is possible to analyze and model the fluid flow performance within our model of study. The use of CFD simulation provides a variety of advantages compared to research studies that are based on theories and experiments:
Low cost for purchase and operation
In-depth information on the fluid flow being studied
It allows for quick changes of parameters during the flow analysis
However, the CFD cannot replace theories and experiences; we must always take a view of two to understand the results. A comparison with our experience shows us the accuracy that is achieved through the simulation.
The majority of CFD software's are split into five primary phases:
Generator the geometry of our subject matter
The processor which obtains the solution
