Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a technique utilising numerical
methods to simulate fluid flow, heat transfer and chemical reactions for the
analysis of systems and processes.
CFD is widely applied in many industries.
an industry sector such as environmental health risk that encompasses a wide
range of issues, CFD techniques can provide significant benefit in many areas.
This paper presents an introduction to CFD modelling techniques and then-
application to a number of relevant issues including the modelling of pollution
producing processes, pollution reduction and transport as well as hazard analysis.
The paper concludes with case studies demonstrating how CFD modelling has
provided direct environmental, health and safety, financial and knowledge
benefits to the solution of a number of pertinent examples.
