Welcome to the new ERCOFTAC "Classic Collection" Database. From these
pages you can access the test cases of the original ERCOFTAC Database,
which was started in 1995, and is now being administered by the
UMIST Mechanical Engineering CFD group.
The database is currently undergoing a re-structuring and expansion to
include, amongst other things, more details of the test cases, computational
results, and results and conclusions drawn from the ERCOFTAC Workshops on
Refined Turbulence Modelling. At the moment, each case should contain at
least a brief description, some data to download, and references to
published work. Some cases contain significantly more information than
this, and over the next few months we plan to add more details to many of
In addition to the flow case descriptions and data, there are also a number
of discussion forums available. These allow users to make their own contributions, by
posting their own findings, questions or answers on particular cases.
The database is open to all fluid dynamicists worldwide. However, to
enable us to keep track of how the database is being used it is necessary
to register in order to download any of the datasets. For those already
using the original database, your username and password remain unaltered.
If you have any comments or suggestions for further improvements, please
either make use of the discussion forum from the link on the left, or
