ERCOFTAC Fluid Dynamics Database at the University of Surrey


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 the cases.

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 e-mail Tim Craft or Dominique Laurence.
