2017 ASME CFD Tutorial – Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP)

On Monday July 17, 2017, Sean McGuffie of Porter McGuffie, Inc. presented the tutorial “The Use of CFD in Design” at the ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping (PVP) Conference in Hawaii.  While this tutorial had the same title as the tutorial presented at the PVP Conference in Toronto in 2012, significant changes were incorporated.

These changes included giving the attendees the opportunity to review the 2012 tutorial to better understand the mathematical basis for the Navier-Stokes equations, online and outside of the presentation.  Removing the tedious mathematics from the presentation enabled Mr. McGuffie to include significantly more information on:

  • Turbulence modeling
  • The actual run process and judging convergence
  • Debugging models
  • The use of CFD in PVP-related applications, including coupling CFD with FEA
